Prayer Groups

Prayer is the living relationship of the children of God with their Father who is good beyond measure, with His Son Jesus Christ and with the Holy Spirit. The many opportunities for prayer at Notre Dame include:
First Fatima Devotions
This prayer group meets on the first Saturday of every month to fulfill our Lady’s requests. The recitation of the Holy Rosary and prayers to our Lady of Fatima immediately follow the 8:00 am Mass.
Legion of Mary
The object of the Legion is the glory of God through the holiness of its member, developed by prayer and active participation in the Church’s work. This includes conducting Bible studies, holding Catholic great books discussions, hospice ministry, Sacred Heart Holy hour and many others. The Legion of Mary meets on Wednesdays, 9:30-11;00 am in the Marian Room.
New Life Prayer Group
The New Life Prayer Group offers praise and thanks to God in song, prayer and Scripture reading (bring your Bible). There is often time for silence and for sharing how God is acting in our lives. Meetings end with prayers of petition and the Our Father. The Holy Spirit has guided many who attend to discern their gifts and to serve others in ministry. Share our joy in praising God every Tuesday evening at 8pm in the Marian room. Prayer Requests: The New Life Prayer Group also takes Prayer requests.
