This is a prayer prayed by the faithful morning, noon and night (at 6 AM, noon and 6 PM, but adjustment are perfectly acceptable). It is great for praying together at family meals, in a verse and response format as shown below. If you live close enough to our parish, you’ll hear the Bells of our bell tower announce the Angelus at 7.30 am, 12 noon, and 6 pm!
V. The Angel of the LORD declared unto Mary,
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary, full of grace; the LORD is with thee: blessed art thou amongst 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.
V. Behold the handmaid of the LORD.
R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.
Hail Mary …
V. And the Word was made flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary …
V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God
R. That we might be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray,
Pour forth, we beseech thee, LORD, thy grace into our hearts;
that, we, to whom the Incarnation of Christ, thy Son,
was made known by the message of an angel,
may by his Passion and Cross
be brought to the glory of his Resurrection.
Through the same Christ our Lord.
We all wonder about right and wrong. But the truly Catholic way of thinking about right and wrong is often misunderstood–even by Catholics! Join Fr. Peter Totleben, O.P. for a series of talks about how to be happy — and how we should think about the good life.

May Crowning Devotion: Thursday, 12 May at 1.15 pm
Our school children will show their devotion to Mary the Mother of God by crowning her image. The practice of depicting the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a crown first developed among Christians after the Council of Ephesus in 431 AD. During the 16th century the practice become widespread. By the middle of the last century almost every parish in the United States had May Crowning Devotions. While the devotions on 12 May will be led by the school children all parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend and take part.
It’s not too late to get involved. How about becoming involved with St. Mary Prison Ministry? The opportunity is open to adult men and women. “People in prison are still people, made in the image and likeness of God. No matter what someone has done, they deserve the opportunity to hear the Word of God.” (USCCB). Four visit dates are left for 2016. Contact J. Kevin Schmelzer for more volunteer information at email@example.com or 740.653.3046. Or join us for coffee and donuts on May 15 after the 8.45 Mass in the Spirit Center.
