THE WAY OF THE CROSS

Last year's Good Friday Way of the Cross

Today, the First Friday of Lent, our parish began the traditional Alphonsus Liguori Way of the Cross. We offer this popular devotion twice each Friday, at 12:10 PM and again at 7:00 PM. We had a huge congregation for the 7:00 PM stations.

We've also begun each Monday, the Miraculous Medal novena at 5:00 PM with Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. We're getting upwards to 60 people! This will be offered throughout the year.

We've had for ages the Holy Rosary following our 8:00 AM daily Mass.

Devotions fell into disregard shortly after Vatican II. I am extremely happy these are making a come-back in our parish!

Is there any possibility of praying the St. Michael the Archangel prayer after masses?

It seems more relevent now than ever, with our current battle against relativism, and our battle againt the healthcare mandate.

The 12:10 Stations of the Cross had a good attendance too.

Carol, I believe it would even be permissible to pray the St Michael's prayer during the Intercessions (or any other Intercessory type prayer that Father may wish to add.
