Men of St. Joseph

The Men of St. Joseph is an association of Christian Men united under the Catholic Church who meet weekly to pray together and encourage each other to be the spiritual leader of their families. Their primary purpose is to instill holiness in men and facilitate spiritual leadership within the community. A weekly one hour meeting is held at 6:00 PM every Tuesday in Jennings Hall.

Eucharistic Adoration

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is displayed in the Church every Wednesday. Parishioners are encouraged to come by between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM to spend an hour honoring and praying over the Holy Eucharist. Adoration is followed by the Novena.

Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help

The Novena is held at Our Savior Church following the day long Eucharistic Adoration on Wednesdays at 6:00 PM. It is a period of prayer to obtain special graces, to implore special favors or to make special petitions.

 

Prayer Chain

Mary Marks

At times, one may wish to place someone close, whether a friend or family member on a prayer list due to an infinite number of issues from health to spiritual. Call either Mary or Frances directly to have your loved one placed on the prayer chain list.

Contemplative Prayer

Marta Gale | Janet Broderick

The Contemplative Prayer Ministry is a way to bring the Gospel reading into our life by practicing an early form of prayer called Lectio Divina. The consistent practice of this form of prayer allows the transforming power of the Inspired Word to open the mind and heart of the participants to the action of the Holy Spirit foster the desire to know Jesus more deeply, to follow Him more closely, and to love Him more dearly.

There are two groups of contemplative prayer. The Spanish one meets on the first and third Sunday of each month, in the library at 5:00 PM. The English one meets the first and third Monday of each month in the Church at 4:00 PM.

Respect for Life and Justice

Ricarda Manning | Tina Lyons

The Respect for Life and Justice Ministry helps the pastor to facilitate the growth of Parish Centered Outreach. The focus includes ways to strengthen the community by educating and building a spiritual commitment to the dignity of life.
