APRIL:
Praying and Suffering
Prayer and suffering sure seems like a downer way to start spring, but as we wrap up Lent and move into Easter, we take this opportunity to focus on the central mystery of our faith - the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ.

We kick off this month with a reflection from Robby Kiley on a prayer of Saint Ignatius, the Suscipe. It is a prayer of surrender, recognizing all we have comes from God. Especially in times of suffering, it helps us to remember that it is God that sustains us!

Tune in to Facebook at 9:30 a.m., Monday-Friday, April 12-16 to pray with our staff and offer a morning offering using the Suscipe.

 
APRIL PRAYER CHALLENGE:
Pray the Suspice!
This month, our parish challenge is to learn the Suspice and pray it daily - in the morning, at night, whenever! Memorization is an often overlooked tool in our faith life, so we hope you'll take the plunge and learn a new prayer.


As a reminder, the Rosary is prayed daily at 3:00 p.m. on Facebook (@StPiusGranger), so come join us there if you'd like someone to accompany you!

Save the Date: Monthly Parish Rosary, April 21 at 6:30 p.m., in person in the Church. 
LIVE ON FACEBOOK
Morning Offering
For those of you looking for a friend to pray with and help you memorize the suscipe, we will be praying a Morning Offering on Facebook at 9:30 a.m. each morning during April 12-16.

We're happy to be your prayer companions as you learn to offer this new prayer to God!
