Saturday Morning Prayer
Beginning in August, our Saturday morning 8 AM mass is being discontinued and replaced with Morning Prayer. This is not a prayer service. This is not a communion service. This is Morning Prayer…….part of the official prayer of our church.
It is our church’s response to Jesus’ command that we “pray always.”
And Morning Prayer is only a part of the official prayer of our church……. because there is also Early Morning Prayer, Mid-morning Prayer, Noon Time Prayer, Mid-afternoon Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer.
Therefore, because it is always “5 o’clock somewhere,” we Christians are always praying….and God smiles when we pray……..
Included as part of our Morning Prayer will be prayers for vocations, because it will only be through prayer that our shortage of priests will be reversed.
