Prayer is communion with God. Prayer can be public or personal, spoken or silent.
The Psalms are prayers we sing.
Prayer is essential to living a full Catholic life.
Traditional and foundational prayers are as follows:

  • Grace before Meals
  • Glory to the Father
  • The Lord’s Prayer
  • Hail Mary
  • Act of Contrition
  • Hail, Holy Queen

The Liturgical Calendar

The seasons of the Church follow one universal liturgical calendar.
  • Advent
  • Christmas
  • Lent
  • Triduum (or Holy Week)
  • Easter
  • Ordinary Time

During the year, in addition to the Sunday worship,
the Church also celebrates Solemnities, Feasts, and
Memorials which may be on any day of the week.
These occur during the year to commemorate special
events or persons that are highly revered by the Catholic Church.

Our parish community stays informed with Catholic News and Perspective.

Papacy & Christian Unity

The Pope is the chief pastor and shepherd of the whole
