Rosary & Benediction
Please join Father John Reif and fellow parishioners in prayer and thanksgiving for the grace-filled devotion to the Rosary and Benediction of Mary's Son and our Divine Lord.The word Rosary means “crown of roses.” each Hail Mary within the Holy Rosary is a very special way to present Our Blessed Mother with a beautiful “rose.” In the month of December, we look forward to celebrating the Feasts of the Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the joy and wonder of the Nativity. We invite all to come together in offering our “roses” to Mary. What a perfect way to honor the Mystical Rose - our loving Mother - during this Advent season!
Please join us and offer your praise, prayers, and petitions to the Lord.
