September 25th thru October 3
O Lord Jesus, now that the world has again grown cold, inflame the hearts of our youth with the fire of Divine Love, as YOU inflamed the heart of Saint Francis, so that through his intercession and after his example, they may devote themselves wholly to Your service, as members of our Order, the Capuchin Franciscan Friars-Province of the Stigmata of Saint Francis, You who live and reign with God the Father and the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen.
O Lord, grant to your Church, saintly priests and fervent religious, especially those looking to answer your call and follow in the footsteps of Saint Francis, and send them to the Capuchin Franciscan Friars - Province of the Stigmata of Saint Francis. AMEN.
Mary, Queen of the Friars Minor, PRAY FOR US.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory Be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
St Ann pray for us.
St Francis, pray for us.
LENTEN COMMUNAL PENANCE SERVICE
Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church
At 7:30pm on Monday, March 24th, a Lenten Communal Penance Service will be held at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church (400 Willow Ave) in Hoboken. Parishioners from the local Catholic churches (and all Catholics) are invited to gather together to receive the mercy of God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We will hear the Word of God and a homily, reflect on the areas of our lives where we need forgiveness and then meet with a priest individually to go to confession and receive absolution. There will be several priests from the local parishes present to hear confessions. Please make every effort to participate in this Penance Service as part of your Lenten preparation for the celebration of Easter.
NEXT EVENT: MOVIE NIGHT
‘…inspiring movie that will provide food for thought (and for the soul) during this Lenten season.’
MARK YOUR CALENDARS…
Thursday April 3rd 7:00pm
On Thursday, April 3rd at 7:00pm at the Parish Center, we will have our first “Movie Night” featuring ‘The Mission’. With a majestic score by Ennio Morricone and lush Oscar-winning cinematography by Chris Menges, Roland Joffé's The Mission examines the events surrounding the Treaty of Madrid in 1750, when Spain ceded part of South America to Portugal, and turns this episode into an allegory for the mid-'80s struggles of Latin America. Two European forces are on hand to win the South American natives over to imperialist ways. The plunderers want to extract riches and slaves from the New World. The missionaries, on the other hand, want to convert the Indians to Christianity and win over their souls. They want to promote a new society in which the natives will live together in peace with the Spanish and the Portuguese. But this concept frightens the royal governors, who would rather enslave the natives than encourage peaceful coexistence between the Europeans and the Indians. As we watch this drama play out, we witness the faith, doubt, hope, love, sinfulness and conversion of the characters involved. It is a very inspiring movie that will provide food for thought (and for the soul) during this Lenten season. It is rated PG but does contain some violence and nudity (in particular among the people of the mission).
