First Saturday Rosary
We are pleased to bring back the First Saturday of the month Rosary. The Rosary will start at 4:00pm allowing it to be finished before the 4:30pm Mass and still have time for quiet, personal reflection. This will be an ongoing, monthly Rosary.
Every moment of prayer, especially before our Lord in the tabernacle, is a sure, positive gain. The time we spend each day sitting with God is the most precious part of the whole day.”Mother Theresa
Power in Prayer
Let’s make time to speak personally to Jesus. Join fellow church members each Wednesday from the comfort of your home, workplace, etc., in spending 10 minutes in prayer anytime day or evening. Enlist your family, a friend, or perhaps you prefer a quite place to meditate. Prayers can be formal or not, including singing or reading scripture. You could offer your work, a kind act, or make a sacrifice as your prayer. We are called to be a holy people (set aside for sacred use). As we focus our mind and heart on Jesus, He transforms us, re-creating us into the ones He designed us to be.
September 26th’s Intention: The Poor
“There are so many people in the world who are dying for a piece of bread, but there are many more people dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty-it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also a profound spiritual poverty. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” Mother Teresa
So also faith of itself, without works is dead. Indeed someone might say, “You have faith and I have works.” Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works. James 2:17-18
Suggested Prayer and Activity: Meditate on these principles and see where the Spirit moves you to act, who to help spiritually or physically or emotionally.
ATTENTION: St. Isidore’s subscription to FORMED expired at the end of May. Our hope is to continue to find the most effective and useful offerings for our parishioners and investing in new ways to new opportunities of faith sharing and evangelization.
One way to do this is through Small Group ministries. This can be done in-person or virtually and there is no cost to participate. If you are interested in Small Group opportunities to connect with others like yourself, please let us know!
