NEW Lectors Needed

We need lectors for the ALL Masses.

Lectors are those who are committed to the ministry of the Word of God. Through prayerful proclamation, lectors embody the Sacred Word in a very special way. God’s Word is alive and active and the presence of Christ radiates from its proclamation at the liturgy. If you feel called to this sacred ministry, call the Maricela Lopez 830-968-2208

Divine Mercy Chaplet

Sunday, April 7th, is Divine Mercy Sunday.

On this special day of God’s mercy, we will pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3:00 p.m. in the Church. We invite everyone to come and joins us to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday.

Help spread the word!


HOW TO RECITE THE CHAPLET OF THE DIVINE MERCY

You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

(Repeat three times)
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

(First pray once the Our Father, Hail Mary and the Creed)
(On the beads of Our Father (once) say the following words:)

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

(On the ten small beads of the Hail Mary (ten times), say the following words:)
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

(To conclude say three times, the following words:)
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

CLOSING PRAYER
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

(Diary. 950).

An Easter Thank You!

We wish to thank all of those who helped make the important days of Holy Week very special. We wish to thank the choirs; Altar Society, Knights of Columbus & Wives; those who donated bread for Holy Thursday, Easter Lilies; the deacons and their wives for all the special hours of service and to all who participated in the Holy Week services. May our beautiful spirit of collaboration continue to grow.
