Our members have completed or are in the process of completing 33 Days to Morning Glory, Consoling the Heart of Jesus, and Wisdom and Works of Mercy. We feel that a big part of our mission at St. Amelia is prayer, both within our group and by our parish. Recitation of the Rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for our country, a Holy Hour for Priests, and celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday are our focus at this time. Our members also visit a nursing facility as a group to frost Christmas cookies and dye Easter eggs, at the same time making new friends there. We occasionally host movie nights with faith focused movies and documentaries as well.
MIRACULOUS MEDAL NOVENA
Monday evenings beginning at 6:30pm all are invited to gather in the Church for Adoration, Benediction and the recitation of the Miraculous Medal Novena. The sacrament of reconciliation is also available.
