The Legion of Mary
Our first weekly meeting for Legion of Mary Active members was held on Tuesday, November 27th between 3:30pm-5pm in the Bride/Confession Room of St. Agnes' Chapel.
If you are unable to attend the weekly Tuesday meetings before Mass please consider supporting the Active members in prayer by becoming an Auxiliary member. Legion of Mary Auxiliary members commit to praying 5 decades of the rosary everyday along with the Legion of Mary Tessera prayers. (Yes, if you already pray the daily rosary, that rosary counts for Auxiliary membership and all you have to do is pray the Tessera prayers.)
If you have an questions please email [email protected]
Supervision of Children: Respect for St. Agnes' Grounds
On behalf of St. Agnes Church, our very gracious host, please ensure that your children are supervised by an adult while playing outside, and that they are not standing on the running water feature outside the chapel. Thank you kindly for your cooperation.

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.

Please Don’t Feed The Priests!
Just kidding. The fathers are very grateful to everyone who brings them meals. Currently organized by Jessica Woods, those regularly providing meals would like to expand to a two-week rotation.

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.
