PENTECOST SUNDAY COME, HOLY SPIRIT!

PentecostPentecost Sunday is one of the most ancient feasts of the church, celebrated early enough to be mentioned in the acts of the apostles (20:16) and Saint Paul's first letter to the Corinthians (16:8). Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day after Easter. Christ had promised his apostles that he would send his Holy Spirit, and, on Pentecost, they were granted the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Monday Evening Novena to Our Lady, Untier of Knots

Untier of KnotsJoin us each Monday evening at 7:00 PM as we pray our weekly devotion to Our Lady, Untier of Knots. Mary, under the title of Our Lady Undoer of Knots or Our Lady Untier of Knots, is an important devotion in the times we live in. The knots represent all the troubles and trials in our lives, and our sins which separate us from God.
