Our parish is very active with many groups.
Legion of Mary – They meet on Tuesdays at 9:00 AM in the Blessed Mother’s room. Mrs. Addie Luers is the President.
Holy Rosary Society – They meet once a month on the last Tuesday before the first Sunday of each month. Check the Parish’s Calendar for their schedule of meetings through the year. Mrs. Gina Odorisio is the President.
Holy Rosary in the Brazilian families – This group is formed by members of the Brazilian community. The image of Our Lady of Grace goes on Friday to the home of a family who welcomes her with much love. On the following Tuesday a group comes to the house to pray the Holy Rosary in Portuguese with that family. This tradition has been part of our parish since 2003. Lana Santos is the coordinator of the group.
Holy Rosary in Italian – For over 40 years now, a group of Italian parishioners meet every Wednesday evening at 7:30 PM to pray the rosary in the church. Frank Modafferi is the coordinator of the group.
Buon Pastore – The Italian group meets every Thursday at 2:00 PM in the church hall (or Blessed Mother’s room during the winter). They study the Bible together in Italian, with the help of Sr. Antonietta Cioce, S.D.V.
Holy Rosary by Brazilian Men – This group was created to provide a space for the men of the community to gather and pray for their families. They meet once a month, in the second Thursday of the month at 8:30 PM in church. Anderson Borges is the coordinator of the group.
