OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP GROUP

This devotional prayer group was formed in 1994 by a desire of one of our parishioners to bring the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Novena to St. Catherine’s. Since that time we have been meeting every Wednesday after the 5:15 PM Mass to pray for the sick, particularly the sick of the Parish and of the three hospitals served by our Church. For more information about the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Prayer Group, join us in the Church after the 5:15 PM Mass each Wednesday. All are welcome.

QUEEN OF PEACE PRAYER GROUP

The Queen of Peace Group gathers in the Church every Saturday from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. Our spiritual practice centers around praying the Scriptural Rosary with Litany, petitions and singing songs. Divine Mercy prayers figure prominently, as well as some novenas in honors of Saints and prayers for the priests. Every year the Group travels to Stockbridge M.A. for our Divine Mercy pilgrimage.
