PRAYER SERVICE IN HONOR OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA

 On Wednesday evening, May 9th, our parish will hold a special prayer service in honor of Our Lady of Fatima. It will be our privilege to have the official pilgrim statue of Our Lady with us for this evening of

prayer and song. The pilgrim statue will be carried in procession to the sanctuary of our lower church where she will remain for the service. Everyone will be invited to write their special prayer intentions during our time of prayer and bring them forward to our Lady’s altar. We hope that many of you will bring fresh flowers for this special occasion. The service will begin at 7 pm in the lower church on Wednesday, May 9th.

ALL ARE WELCOME!

Join Others in Prayer for the Victims of the Las Vegas Massacre

Saturday, October 7, 2017
5:15 p.m. (Mass)

Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul

The massacre in Las Vegas this past Sunday night taking the lives of almost sixty people and injuring almost 600 people affects all of us. All people of good will are welcome this Saturday evening, October 7th to the 5:15 p.m. Mass to pray for all the victims—those who have died and those who have been injured, for healing and for an end to such senseless tragedy in our land. We can never allow ourselves to become immune to horrific violence and also to fail to pray for those caught in the grip of such violence. Those who have died will be especially remembered as we unite them to the Sacrifice of the Lord in the Eucharist.

The Archdiocesan Rosary that will take place later this same evening at the Cathedral Basilica at 7:00 p.m. will also include prayers for all those who have died and have been injured in the Las Vegas Massacre.
