*** Upcoming Weeks Events ***
Tuesday, October 15 - Marian Icon Prayer Service in the church chapel at 7:00 pm
Color Corps preparation at 6:30 pm
Saturday, October 19 - Knights Hour of Adoration in the Adoration Chapel at 7:00 pm

In every age Christians have suffered for their faith from the Roman Coliseum to the recent beheadings perpetrated by ISIS. Today the witness of martyrs continues
in an especially intense way in the Middle East where priests are murdered for offering Mass and Families driven from their homes for displaying a cross.
In order to spread devotion to Our Lady and pray for those at risk around the world, the Knights will host the Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians Icon and hold
a Marian Prayer Program. The icon, which travels from parish to parish throughout Florida, will be at our parish from Sunday October 13th to Sunday October 20th
and a Prayer Service will be held in the Church Chapel at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 15th.
The Icon will be placed in the Church Chapel for Weekday Mass Services and attendees are encouraged to pray the Rosary from the Marian Prayer Booklet before Mass.
The Icon will be placed in the Church for Weekend Masses. The focal point of this “Faith in Action” Prayer Program is the Prayer Service on Tuesday October 15th
at 7:00 p.m., in the Church Chapel, which is open to all. Please join us for the Prayer Service on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m and if you can for one or two of the Weekday
Rosaries at 7:00 a.m, before morning Mass. Don't forget to wear your Council Shirts!
