Mother's Day

"My soul magnifies the Lord And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid; For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed; Because He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name”

Luke 1: 46-55

Our Mother’s Day Novena of Masses runs from Sunday, May 13, to Monday, May 22.  Pick up a spiritual bouquet greeting card, available in the church or in the parish office, and send it to your mother.  The white outer envelopes will remain on the altar during this time in honor of your prayer intentions.  There is no better gift that can be given than the gift of prayers.  Your donation is appreciated.

Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day Prayer

"Mary, on this day when we honor all mothers, we turn to you. We thank the Lord whom you serve for the great gift of motherhood. Never has it been known that anyone who sought your intercession was left unaided by grace. Dear Mother, thank you for your "Yes" to the invitation of the angel which brought heaven to earth and changed human history. You opened yourself to God's word and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

Dear mother, intercede for all of our mothers. Ask your Divine Son to give them the grace of surrendered love so that they could join with you in giving their own "Fiat." May they find daily strength to say yes to the call to the sacrificial love- the very heart of the vocation of motherhood. May their love and witness be a source of great inspiration for all of us called to follow your Son.

On this Mothers day, Mother of the Word Incarnate, pray for us who have recourse to you...

In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit."
