Our Parish Forty Hours Eucharistic Devotions is moving from the Fall to the Spring in order to coincide with the Feast of St. Catharine (April 29). Our next Forty Hours will be held in April of 2025.

This year's Eucharistic devotion will take the form of a day of reflection on Sunday, April 28, with a time of Adoration following the 11:30 AM Mass until the Closing Benediction Service at 4 PM.

Our guest preacher will be Fr. Luke Mary Fletcher, CFR a co-Chaplain at the Worldwide Apostolate Shrine of Fatima ("Blue Army Shrine") in Asbury, NJ. Father Luke is a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal.

Examination of Conscience for Adults

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a powerful Sacrament of Healing. It is always important to make an honest, thorough, and humble examination of conscience prior to receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation (aka Penance or Confession) so that one can make a great confession and receive the forgiveness, freedom, peace, and sanctifying grace that God eagerly wants to give us in this powerful sacrament. Here is a great examination of conscience for adults that can help you make a good and fruitful confession:

St. John Vianney's Prayer for Priests

God, please give to Your Church today many more priests after Your own heart. May they be worthy representatives of Christ the Good Shepherd. May they wholeheartedly devote themselves to prayer and penance; be examples of humility and poverty; shining models of holiness; tireless and powerful preachers of the Word of God; zealous dispensers of Your grace in the sacraments. May their loving devotion to your Son Jesus in the Eucharist and to Mary his Mother be the twin fountains for fruitfulness for their ministry. Amen.
