Novena of Grace Mass with Presentation: March 4 - 12
Weekdays at 7 pm, Saturday at 4:30 pm and Sunday at 8 & 10:30 am
We invite you to join us for a Lenten Retreat and pray the Novena of Grace in honor of Saint Francis Xavier. It is traditional to pray the Novena for a particular intention, asking for what you desire from God. Pray for your own needs, those of your loved ones or the needs of the world. The Novena of Grace takes place in the context of the celebration of the Mass, in which a preacher gives a homily, tradtionally on the life of Saint Francis Xavier and draws lessons for his listeners. Visit our Liturgy Page for more details.

7 pm, with Opportunity for Individual Reconciliation

A Stewardship Prayer for February
You sent us Your Spirit
to help us
live the Gospel
according to the gifts
we have been given.
Show us how to be
good stewards of
your grace and
of Christ, Your Son.
Grant us the wisdom
to recognize that
through His gift of the Eucharist there is one bread,
and we are one body.
Give us the strength
to proclaim His Good News in word and deed.
And teach us to live,
no longer for ourselves,
but in Jesus Christ
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.
