PENTECOST NOVENA – Friday, May 19 through Saturday, May 27
Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would be sent by the Father in His name. After His ascension, the apostles went back to the upper room. There were 120 people in that room. They devoted themselves with one accord to pray while awaiting the Promise. Join us in praying the Pentecost Novena with one accord beginning Friday, May 19th through Saturday, May 27th at 6 pm on Zoom as we celebrate the giving of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Email Rita Hatchett to register at [email protected].

If you participate in Sunday Masses through Zoom, please participate by leading the prayer of Spiritual Communion. You sign up for two to three Sundays through the year. When it is your turn, you will read the Spiritual Communion to everyone on Zoom. You do not need to host or moderate the Zoom Mass. All you do is unmute yourself and read the prayer. You choose the Sundays that work best for you. To volunteer, email Monique at [email protected] and include your name, phone number, and two to three Sundays to read the prayer.

The Hospitality Ministers are the friendly people who greet and seat you for Mass. You already come to church, so why not come early and volunteer to serve at one Sunday a month? You can check out the Hospitality training video on *WATCH* Videos of Parish Ministries. Virtus training is required. To learn more about this ministry, email [email protected]
