A week from this Friday is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In preparation please consider joining members of the Children's Rosary by saying a novena in Honor of Jesus' Sacred Heart. This is also the same Novena St. Padre Pio prayed daily for those who asked for his prayers. We will be starting the novena Wednesday June 3rd and concluding on June 11th.

Say the Hail, Holy Queen* and add: St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us. -- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
*Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O Clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
