Youth Schola

All youth in the parish who are in second grade or older are invited to join the Youth Schola. The choir sings on numerous Sundays and feast days throughout the year. In the context of sacred liturgical music, the singers learn healthy singing techniques, how to read music notation and many other musical skills. Rehearsals are Wednesday afternoons from 3:30-4:00PM, begin-ning September 27. All are welcome and there is no fee to participate.

Hospital Rosary Apostolate

The rosary is recited on CCTV at St. Francis Hospital on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 3pm. We need more volunteers to lead. Please call Andria Morris to join the group.

Don't Forget the Unborn

Parishioners are reminded to join fellow pro-life Catholics each first and third Saturday at 9:00 a.m. -10:00 a.m. to pray the Rosary at the abortion mill at Boulevard and Grove in Richmond. This is an important witness to the sanctity of human life and can often convince a mother to preserve the life of her child. Those parishioners who have been there can testify to the efficaciousness of their prayer. For additional information, call Patrick Latimer at 262-7628. Please join the 2013 Public Square Rosary Crusade. As we all know, the United States is in great need of public prayer, repentance and conversion. We must ask God to save America through the Rosary of His Most Holy Mother.
