STM is planning a monthly Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration to be held on a Wednesday evening. Our ministries will rotate helping host the monthly Holy Hour. This will be a wonderful way for our parish to come before Our Lord in prayer and rest in the loving embrace of Our God. Also, by gathering our ministries together, we can ask the Lord to shower all of us with his manifold graces he is always ready to give.
We cordially invite you and your family to join us on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 from 7:00-8:00 PM for the Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration. If you cannot spend the whole hour with us, please come for just a few minutes to rest in the silence and peace of Jesus present to us in his Holy Eucharist.
"To visit the Blessed Sacrament is... a proof of gratitude, an expression of love, and a duty of adoration toward Christ, Our Lord." -Saint Paul VI
"And a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years and had spent all her living upon physicians and could not be healed by any one, came up behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment; and immediately her flow of blood ceased. And Jesus said, 'Who was it that touched me?' (...) Falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed. And he said to her, 'Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.'" -Luke 8:43-44, 47-48
The month of October is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary. We have several opportunities planned for the month to pray the Rosary together and invoke Our Lady's intercession through this incredible devotion. As we contemplate Jesus' life through the mysteries of the Rosary, we ask Mary to help our parish draw closer to her son, Jesus, Our Lord.
