Praying Together

Mary in Garden ShadowThe Blue Army

A Rosary Group dedicated to fulfill our Lady’s request at Fatima. The Blue Army meets every Monday evening in the Chapel of the Joachim Center from 7:00-8:00 PM to pray the Rosary. After the Rosary, a reading is selected, regarding Our Lady, and read to the group. After every daily Mass, the Rosary is recited in the Chapel. On the first Saturday of each month, the Blue Army meets at 7:30 AM (before 8:00 AM Mass) and recites the Rosary. The Rosary is also prayed on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 AM.

In May, the Blue Army leads the Rosary with the First Communicants in a special May Crowning Mass.

Rosaries are repaired at no charge. All are welcome to attend.

The Prayer Tree

A small group of people quietly serving in a special ministry and is known for its long-time commitment to the needs of others. These individuals quietly pray behind the scenes for their fellow parishioners, their families and our community. At times known as “God-sent listening ears”, they pray for successful surgeries, marriages, healthy babies, medical needs and much more.

These compassionate people take a few minutes out of a busy day to pray for the needs of others. There are no meetings, no minutes and no reports. All are welcome to open their hearts to reach out and join the ranks of those praying.
