The Rachel Rosary

Come pray the Rachel Rosary on Thursday, October 24th at 6:30pm at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.  The Rachel Rosary is a special intercessory prayer for victims of post-abortion syndrome and a powerful tool for focusing our prayer that the merciful touch of God will heal our wounded brothers and sisters and end the scourge of abortion. Please note the Rachel Rosary is quite longer than the normal rosary.  It has special intentions incorporated throughout the prayer.

Our Parishes’ Great Adventure Bible Study Continues

Join your fellow parishioner’s ongoing Great Adventure for Acts: the Spread of the Kingdom at Trinita every other Tuesday for 20 sessions from 6:30—8:30pm. 

Acts is the story of how a few Christians empowered by the Holy Spirit were chosen to bring Christ and the Good News to the ends of the earth.  They faced secular forces, internal strife, and hostile crowds, and despite all this, they brought the kingdom of God to a broken world and the love of God to the hearts of men. 

For more information or to register for the Study, forms are available on the tables at the back of the Church, or contact Ken Foisie at 860-678-7922 cfn_inc@comcast.net,  Deborah Kellogg at djkrunning@yahoo.com; Yvonne Stoops at YStoops@gmail.com 860.693.1913 or Sanita Gingras at segingas116@yahoo.com.
