OCTOBER FAMILY PRAYER:
Litany of the Saints
When we sing or recite the Litany of the Saints, we seek the prayer of the whole Church – her members here on earth and the saints who are in Heaven. Because the saints are already in God’s presence, they can act as powerful intercessors for us… good and loyal friends that care for us and present our prayers to God. 

The Triumphal Arch in our Church gives us a visible reminder of those holy men and women – the Communion of the Saints – who have already been welcomed into the kingdom of heaven. 

Join Sally Flask, Assistant Director of Liturgy, for a closer look at the Litany of the Saints. 
OCTOBER PRAYER CHALLENGE
Our challenge this month is to subscribe to a saint of the day email list. Commit to reading about and praying with the saint of the day every day! The most popular email list comes from Fransiscan Media (https://www.franciscanmedia.org/source/saint-of-the-day/), but the FaithND email also features a daily saint along with their daily Gospel meditations (http://faith.nd.edu/), as do other publications.
PRAY WITH US: Live!
Whatever publication you may choose to follow, we invite you to join us on Tuesdays in October, LIVE on Facebook, for a special edition of the daily 3:00 p.m. Rosary. Following the Rosary on Tuesdays, one of our staff members will share their favorite saint and ask for their prayers for our parish. As always, please make sure to add your comments and feedback on the Facebook page - and thank you for diving deeper into prayer with us this year!
