At Holy Family Parish, we are glad to offer many opportunities for prayer — individual prayer, liturgical prayer at the Sacraments and Mass, and prayer in small groups. The following groups meet regularly for their members to support each other in prayer and to develop their lives of prayer. Please feel free to contact any of the coordinators to get involved and join in our parish’s life of prayer!

Divine Mercy Devotion

Gathering on Fridays after the 12 Noon Mass, this group prays the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Rosary each week. Contact Loretta Calandra for more information, or just plan to attend. Please bring a Rosary. *We invite you to pray the Divine Mercy Devotional prayers at home when no Mass is scheduled.

Marian Movement for Priests

Meeting on Wednesdays after the 12Noon Mass, this group prays a consecration to the Blessed Mother and her Immaculate Heart, prays the Rosary, and offers special prayers for our priests, deacons and religious.

RISE: 30 Day Challenge for Men

The RISE:30 Day Challenge is a powerful video series from national Catholic speaker and author Chris Stephanick of Real Life Catholic that has changed the lives of thousands of men around the world. It’s for men who want to really live the beauty and power of the Gospel in their day-to-day lives. It’s for men who rise up to the challenge of being the fathers, sons, brothers, and husbands they were meant to be. Videos are delivered right to your email, only takes about 5 minutes each morning, and is open to all men of the parish. For more information, contact Marc LaClair at mflaclair@gmail.com.
