SPECIAL MONDAY CONFESSIONSSeptember 26 and October 3 – 4:00 to 4:45pm in Church.

ST. MICHAEL PRAYERwill be prayed at all parish Masses until November 1.  With war, division and strife plaguing the world, it is a time to renew our efforts to pray more earnestly for God’s Peace.  This traditional prayer is meant to invoke God’s blessings upon ourselves and the world – invoking the intercession of Archangel Saint Michael.  (September 29 marks the Feasts of the Archangels: Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.  The Feast of the Guardian Angels occurs on October 2.  All Saints Holy Day occurs on November 1.)  Among the versions of this prayer:

“Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness of the devil.  May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou O Prince of Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, Cast into Hell, Satan and all the evil spirits that prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.”
