Legion of Mary Group
We are looking to start a Legion of Mary praesidium at Corpus Christi Chapel. The Legion of Mary began in 1921 in Dublin, Ireland. The object of the Legion of Mary is to glorify God through the holiness of its members by prayer and active co-operation in Mary’s and the Church’s work. There are two types of membership:
- Active members — attend a praesidium meeting once a week for prayer, reports and planning. Members are then sent out two-by-two to complete an apostolic work assignment within the week. Apostolic work at Corpus Christi may include nursing home visitation, Pilgrim Virgin Mary visits, home-to-home visitation, and evangelization through crowd contact.
- Auxiliary members — support the active members in prayer by praying 5 decades of the rosary and the Legion of Mary Tessera each day.
If you are interested to learn more about the Legion of Mary or how to join please email [email protected]
Mondays for Life
Please join our weekly “Mondays for Life” prayer vigils each Monday from 9 to 10 A.M. outside of the Naples Planned Parenthood at 1425 Creech Road. Our priests will lead us in the Rosary as we pray for babies at risk of abortion, their mothers, and all people who impact the lives of these innocent victims. Parking is strictly limited. To help us plan and coordinate carpooling if necessary, please contact Pam Grothaus to RSVP at: (703) 772-3656 or [email protected].
Men’s Holy Hour of Reparation
Some Corpus Christi faithful who live in Ave Maria are meeting at Ave Maria Parish at 8:00 PM on Mondays to pray the Holy Hour of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The prayer group is for men only. The intention of the Holy Hour is in reparation for blasphemy and sacrilege against the Holy Eucharist and the Holy Priesthood in addition to other personal intentions. For any interested, please contact Dr. Joseph Burke: [email protected]
Please Don’t Feed The Priests!
Just kidding. The fathers are very grateful to everyone who brings them meals. Currently organized by Mrs. Catherine Yarbrough, those regularly providing meals would like to expand to a two-week rotation. Please consider sharing the bounty of your table with our Priests. Visit CorpusChristiFSSP.com/food for details or email [email protected]
Total Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Join us on after Mass on Wednesdays from 6:10 PM. to 6:30 P.M. for an exposition of the book "True Devotion to Mary" by St. Louis de Montfort in preparation for total consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary on the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8.
Catequesis en Español
Este miércoles no habrá catequesis en español, debido a la misa cantada y devociones en honor del Inmaculado Corazón de María. Se suspenderá hasta próximo aviso, ya que se sustituirá, a partir del 29 de agosto hasta el 8 de diciembre, con la preparación para la consagración total mariana, que comenzará a las 630pm con el rezo del santo rosario, y en seguida la plática a las 7pm. Favor de contactar a la Sra. Ma. Jordana 305-281-9735 o a la Sra. Nile Costa 561-234-6277 para registrarse.
