Eucharistic Holy Hour

Bishop David Ricken has asked every Parish in the diocese to schedule a monthly holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament. This practice is part of his pastoral plan that will focus on PRAYER for the next two years. Our next Holy Hour will be Friday, December 7th following the 12:05 Mass. The Blessed Sacrament will be placed on the altar and there will be prayers, scripture readings, and time for silent reflection.

Holy Hours and Benediction used to be popular devotions in parishes. It has been a while since we've held them at St. Joe's. Presumably, this is the case elsewhere. in bringing back this devotion, we hope many will find this as a means to appreciating the Eucharist and increasing our prayer life.

Taize Prayer Service

6:00 p.m., Friday, December 14th

Taize, an ecumenical service, is a form of Christian contemplative worship. Using just a few words, chants are sung over many times. As the words are sung over many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being.
