immaculate conceptionTHE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

MASSES at 9:15 am with the School students at the church unless it rains, then it will be at the parish center; 6:30 pm Mass celebrated by Fr. Mark Mengel

Prayer: Loving and gracious God, we thank you and praise you for the gift of Mary, your Mother. You honored this simple woman of faith from the moment of her conception with the favor of sinlessness. You gave Mary the privilege of conceiving and bearing your beloved Son. Her “yes” to the angel’s announcement opened the way for our salvation. Send your Holy Spirit to us to be our guide as we reflect on the meaning of Mary’s Immaculate Conception for us today. We pray through Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
