The Catholic Tradition hosts a wide variety of spiritual practice and devotions, and our parish sponsors and hosts several, for the enrichment of its members and for the betterment of the world through intercession to divine grace.
Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament is held every Monday from 8:30 AM until 8:00 AM on Tuesday. The sacrament is processed to the Blessed Sacrament chapel at the conclusion of the Monday morning and teams of parishioners rotate in shifts of prayer throughout the day. Prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament offers a moment of solitude to pray, a focused opportunity to examine one’s conscience in light of the glory of God and a greater devotion to the Eucharist and the sacrifice of Christ that it represents. Anyone is welcome to stop in at any time during Adoration and parishioners are encouraged to sign up for one of the shifts throughout the day.
The rosary is offered a half an hour before every morning mass (Sundays and weekdays) by a variety of parish organizations and individuals.
A Men’s Group gathers every Saturday morning from 6:30 – 8:00 AM in the Gathering Space. Members pray the Angelus and Divine Office together, they share reflections on a scripture passage or on a commonly read book, and they engage each other in the challenges and beauty of living out a Christian commitment. All men are welcome to join.
Lectio Divina is a form of personal reflection on a short passage of scripture. It can also be a beneficial form of group sharing. It is practiced at Families Breaking Open the Word and as a part of meetings or sacramental preparation. It is a simple form of prayer encouraged for all parishioners to deepen their knowledge and love of scripture and to broaden their spiritual imagination.
