Welcome

The month of Mary, dedicated to Mary as the Queen of May, invites us to pray some of the best known and much loved prayers to the Blessed Mother. The “Memorare” is one such prayer and us attributed to Saint Bernard of Clairvaux.

 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Parish First Friday Devotions to the Sacred Heart Beginning on December 7th

Parishioners are encouraged to join together in prayer for 9 consecutive First Fridays to pray for parish unity, healing for the faithful, and wisdom for Bishop Gainer in selecting a new pastor for St. Margaret Mary.  This prayer initiative, which began in October, includes praying the Litany of the Sacred Heart at the end of the First Friday 12:15 Mass, and also includes a First Friday Holy Hour in the Sacred Heart Adoration Chapel from 7 - 8 p.m.  There will be time for private and shared prayer in this way that brings honor to the Sacred Heart as encouraged by our patroness, Saint Margaret Mary.  The First Friday devotion usually includes reception of Holy Communion for nine consecutive First Fridays.  Even if you are not able to be with us in person, please join us in a spirit of prayer.
