First Saturday Devotion


On the first Saturday of every month there is the recitation of the Rosary before the exposed Blessed Sacrament at 8:15 a.m.

This is followed by Morning Prayer at 8:45 and culminates with Mass at 9:00 a.m. in the Upper Church. Mass also includes anointing of the sick.



REMEMBER,

O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Blessed Mother


"We fly to your patronage,
O Holy Mother of God,
despise not our petitions in our necessities,
But deliver us from all danger,
O ever glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen."

(Sub Tuum Praesidium)
