Join us as we unite with Bishop John Noonan, and the Holy Father for a solemn Act of Consecration of humanity to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as we pray for peace and unity in Russia and Ukraine.

As requested by Pope Francis, we will gather at 12 noon this Friday, March 25th, the Solemnity of the Annunciation, on the Front Porch of the Parish Life Center where we will recite the Prayer of Consecration.  Afterward, our priests will lead us in praying the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary over by the Rosary Garden.

Let’s come together as a family in Christ to pray for peace for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and Russia.

If you are unable to attend please click here to pray Pope Francis’ the Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary that he will pray from Basilica of Saint Peter.

 This Act of Consecration is meant to be a gesture of the universal Church, which in this dramatic moment lifts up to God, through his Mother and ours, the cry of pain of all those who suffer and implore an end to the violence, and to entrust the future of our human family to the Queen of Peace.…I ask you to join in this act by inviting the faithful to assemble in their churches and places of prayer on 25 March, so that God’s Holy People may raise a heartfelt and choral plea to Mary our Mother” – Pope Francis 3-21-22

 The Five Sorrowful Mysteries are traditionally prayed on the Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays of Lent. They are:

  • The Agony in the Garden

  • The Scourging at the Pillar

  • The Crowning with Thorns

  • The Carrying of the Cross

  • The Crucifixion and Death
