Parish Project 2017

As you know, the Diocese of Pittsburgh is facing a shortage of priests in the near future.  How can you help?  Pray.  The Diocese has asked parishioners to participate in the 31 Club, created by the Diocese for an increase in priestly vocations.  

Here’s how:   By becoming a 31 Club member, you are promising to pray ONE rosary ONE day a month specifically for an increase of priestly vocations in the Pittsburgh Diocese.

To join, visit:  www.pghpriest.com  Cards explaining this ministry are in the literature rack in the back of the church.  Thank you, OLMM Prayer Ministry

Concluding prayers

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope!

To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning  and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most precious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards His life, death and resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries in the most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise: through the same Christ, our Lord. Amen
