Here at Holy Rosary we are blessed with many parishioners willing to step up to help our Masses run smoothly by serving as Choir Members, Nursery Workers, Ushers, Altar Servers, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors, and Greeters. As our parish continues to flourish and grow, so does our need for volunteers.
Please take some time to consider how you might be able to help as a liturgical minister. Remember, “As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” 1Peter 4:10
Your participation in one of our liturgical ministries will be a blessing for our parish and will help renew your participation at Mass.
Currently, to completely meet the ministry needs at each Mass the following additional volunteers are needed.
Ushers, Choir Members, Nursery Workers
We are asking for your help. If you are willing to serve please contact Angie White at email@example.com or 901-767-6949
Come worship Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of His Body and Blood at a Healing Holy Hour every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm in the Church.
The Liturgy of the Hours also known as the “Divine Office” is, following the Mass, the most important prayer of the Church. Priests, deacons and religious are bound to pray it every day, but the Laity are also highly encouraged to unite their voices and intentions to those of the whole Church in this prayer. The Liturgy of the Hours is prayed continually by Catholics throughout the world. At any given time someone will be praying this beautiful prayer which purpose is to sanctify the day and the whole range of human activity. Morning Prayer (Lauds) and Evening Prayer (Vespers), the two main hours, are accorded the highest importance. Before the Second Vatican Council it was not unusual to see many parishes celebrating Sunday Vespers; and while, in our diocese, it has fallen out of normal parish life, the Vatican II document Sacrosanctum Concilium, the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, is very intentional in calling us to pray with and for the Church in this way. In fact, it states: “Pastors of souls should see to it that the chief hours, especially Vespers, are celebrated in common in church on Sundays and the more solemn feasts…” (100) In following this call of the Church we celebrate Vespers with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament every Sunday. We celebrate Solemn Vespers on the Sundays of Advent and Lent and when announced.
Holy Rosary Vespers
