Who We Are


May Prayer challenge

May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. What a perfect time to add the rosary to your prayer routine! So take our May Rosary Challenge!

New to the rosary? Say a decade a day or add the rosary to your prayer routine one day a week.

Already pray the rosary? Why not add a reflective reading to your practice.

Leading a meeting? This is a great start or finish.  Pray a decade of the rosary that has a mystery that pertains to your meeting or offers a fruit of the mystery that aids your mission

Prayer of the Year This year join us in praying for the Virtue of Obedience

As we start the new liturgical year let us add this beautiful prayer from St Therese of Lisieux to our daily prayer routine.

Jesus, Almighty King of kings,
You Who obeyed Your Father to the end,
Teach me the meaning of obedience.

My soul burns to comply to Your Will,
Striving to charm Your Divinity.

While my worldly nature seeks one way,
My spiritual nature seeks another.

Bless me with the strength to obey,
That my soul may subdue both natures,
Blending them as a fair aromatic bloom.

I always seek favor in Your eyes,
To always obey You until my last breath!
