Spiritual Organizations

Charismatic Prayer Group
Charismatic Prayer Group is made up of people from varying backgrounds who meet regularly in an atmosphere of love and support for one another in an effort to grow in the knowledge and love of God, and to show this love in their attitude to their neighbor. Each prayer meeting is open to anyone who wants to come.

The prayer meeting has been a place where many, many, people have found a new dimension to their spiritual lives, and have discovered the love of God in a more profound way.

St Paul wrote in 1 Cor 14:26:
When you assemble, one has a hymn, another some instruction to give, still another a revelation to share, one speaks in a tongue, another interprets. Let all things be done to build up the community.

Christian Mothers Rosary Confraternity
The mission of the Christian Mothers Rosary Confraternity (“CMRC”) is to:

Unite all women in our community in religious, education, cultural and social activities.
To promote Christian Family Life and to establish devotion to Mary and the Rosary.
To pray for our families, especially our children.
Our ministry is to take care of the Altar and purchase the items necessary to maintain it for the mass.

The Blessed Mother is a perfect role model for all of us. We need to keep her image strong and alive in our families. Our Blessed Mother is always there for us when we call on her for assistance. She leads us to her Son, Jesus. The Christian Mothers Rosary Confraternity is a special way to honor her. Please give us a call to find to find out more information about joining.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month (except September and November). Our meetings start at 7:30 pm sharp with devotion to the Blessed Mother, Rosary and CMRC prayers. We meet in the Parish Hall for our regular meetings and all events. We also enjoy two special events every year; a Christmas Party Dinner to celebrate Jesus' Birthday, and a fundraiser dinner whose date will be announced. For questions or more information, please contact Louise Smith, President of CMRC at 516-735-1375.

Divine Mercy Prayer Group
PURPOSE: There is nothing that man needs more than "Divine Mercy" - that love which is benevolent, which is compassionate, which raises man above his weakness to the infinite heights of the holiness of God. "Jesus I Trust In You."

RESPONSIBILITIES: Attend gathering at church every Friday at 2 pm. Booklets for readings and rosaries are provided. Time: 45 minutes

Jesus calls for your presence. Come and trust in Him, that we can fully experience the love and peace of God. Come and bring your family and friends.

Through St. Faustina, Our Lord calls us, reminding us to turn to Him with our troubles and our spiritual needs and to ask for His Mercy. He asked Sister Faustina to “encourage souls to say the Chaplet which I have given to you. Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death. When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between my Father and the dying person, not as the just judge, but as the Merciful Savior. No soul that has called upon My mercy has ever been disappointed.” - St. Faustina Diary

Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin, Ireland on 7 September 1921. It is a lay catholic organisation whose members are giving service to the Church on a voluntary basis in almost every country.

The object of the Legion of Mary is the glory of God through the holiness of its members developed by prayer and active co-operation in Mary’s and the Church’s work. The unit of the Legion of Mary is called a praesidium, which holds a weekly meeting, where prayer is intermingled with reports and discussion. Persons who wish to join the Legion must apply for membership in a Praesidium.

The Legion sees as its priority the spiritual and social welfare of each individual. The members participate in the life of the parish through visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes and in hospitals and through collaboration in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by the parish. Every legionary is required to carry out a weekly apostolic work in the spirit of faith and in union with Mary.

“Prayer is the best armor we have. It is the key which opens the heart of God." - St. Padre Pio
