Cenacle of Divine Mercy I

A group of people who gather for song, prayer and discussion on Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the writing of St. Faustina.

Cenacle of Divine Mercy II

The Divine Mercy Cenacle is named for the upper room where Jesus met with His disciples for the Last Supper. Just as the disciples sat with Jesus in that upper room, participants in the cenacle will listen to Jesus through Scripture, the Catechism, the diary of St. Faustina, and prayer. The Divine Mercy Cenacle of St. Mary’s explores the writings of St. Faustina and focuses on the message of the Divine Mercy. The group meets on the 3rd Friday of every month, in Room #105, from 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Our Lady of Fatima Pilgrimage Statue

People are invited to host the statue in their home for one week. Our Lady of Fatima appeared to St. Jacinta, St. Francesco, and St. Lucia in 1917 in Portugal. This statue has been in our parish for for more than forty years with The Blue Army.  The only requirement is that the rosary is prayed daily in the home.

If interested in having the statue in your home,  please contact Hope Chavanne by phone at 633-9535, text at 726-479-5043 or send an email if you have any questions

Women’s Faith Sharing Group

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as you see the day approaching.

Hebrews 10:25

If you are a woman who has attended a Christ Renews His Parish or Christ Renews Welcome 2.0 Retreat and you are looking to stay connected with your Sisters in Christ, this is a great group for you.

The group shares te previous Sunday’s readings and discusses the scriptures and faith with one another. There is no “homework”. You may wish to bring your own Bible or one will be provided.

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday each month, 7-8 PM, in parish center room #109.

We hope you will join us. ~~Rosanne Saccoccia & Saundra Seep

We must consider how to rouse one another to love and good works. Hebrews 10:24
