Sunday Solemn Vespers

4:00 p.m. Sunday Afternoon
St. John the Beloved will celebrate Solemn Vespers in the Church every Sunday during the Lenten Season. Solemn Vespers takes place in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament enthroned on the altar, includes a homily after the reading and concludes with Benediction. Come join in the official Evening Prayer of the Church.

In Testimonium...

Tomorrow, the Solemnity of St. Joseph, many of us will be making or renewing our consecration to Jesus through Mary. St. Louis de Montfort (1673-1716) helped promote through his book True Devotion to Mary this way of making our lives more intentional.

On the Saturdays of Lent some of us who have been reading 33 Days to Morning Glory have been gathering to listen to and to discuss the reflections of Fr. Michael Gaitley MIC whose Consecration Prayer might inspire you to join us next time:

I, __________, a repentant sinner, renew and ratify today in your hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism. I renounce Satan and resolve to follow Jesus Christ even more closely than before. Mary, I give you my heart. Please set it on fire with love for Jesus. Make it always attentive to his burning thirst for love and for souls. Keep my heart in your most pure Heart that I may love Jesus and the members of his Body with your own perfect love.
