Who We Are
Prayer is the expression in word and action of our relationship with God. Its purpose is to develop and deepen this relationship through spoken word- liturgical worship or heart to heart spontaneous conversation with the Lord. We Catholics have a rich treasure of prayers for all occasions or circumstances. The most precious of these is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Consistent with this greatest prayer are prayers of adoration, praise, petition and thanksgiving.
Prayer is also expressed through action.
What We Do
We intend to accomplish this goal by publishing articles in our parish bulletin, on our website and other social media... by offering a variety of resources including recommendations re conferences, speakers and websites and printed material that foster a greater understanding and appreciation of the many forms of prayer in our spiritual life.
Let Us Pray for Holy Mother Church and St. Patrick
No situation is outside the light of the Resurrection, the power of the Holy Spirit, or God the Father’s love. Every aspect of our lives is under this powerful influence. When we pray, whether it be for the needs of the world or our own spiritual growth, then God is there to meet our every desire.
