Gospel of Life Holy Hour


Life at all stages is a gift from God—whether it is life of the unborn in the womb or life outside the womb for those suffering from disabilities, abuse or neglect.

During this Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament we will pray for the vast number of babies not allowed to be born, for the poor whose lives are made difficult, for men and women who are victims of brutal violence, for the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy.  Our prayers may lift their spirits and perhaps even bring about a change in their condition, thereby bringing them peace.

We will pray aloud the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for their welfare and then continue in silent prayer for the remainder of the hour.  If a priest or deacon is present he will offer Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament.

Most everyone knows of someone who is in need of prayer.—whether it be family, friend or acquaintance.  Please join us whenever you can during this important Holy Hour to bring them consolation and peace.
Attendance is voluntary.  For information, contact Joan Hosek at
