Rosary Novena for our nation

August 15 to Oct. 7, 2019

The time is now to call upon God, through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary, to heal our country and return it to holiness.

This is a nationwide prayer campaign called the “Novena for Our Nation.” Everyone from around the nation is encouraged to join ranks as, united, we pray the very powerful 54 Day Rosary Novena from the Feast of the Assumption on August 15 to the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7.

We continue to live in peace-less times with laws and court rulings in conflict with God’s laws; especially the disregard for the rights of the unborn, elderly and weak in our society and the attacks on marriage and family values. Society and many levels of government continue to demonstrate intolerance towards biblically based religious belief and practice. In conflict with First Amendment constitutional rights, persecution of traditional religious expression has reached historically high levels. We are in a Spiritual Battle.

We are called upon to help turn our country back towards God. We will accomplish that through prayer; prayer that can change hearts, change families, change our communities and change our country. There is no stronger weapon in this Spiritual Battle than the Rosary.

Lighting Our Hearts on Fire

Personal Consecration

As part of our Diocese’s Year of the Awakening, “Lighting Our Hearts on Fire”, Bishop Checchio shared how all of us can participate in a personal consecration to Jesus through the Perfect Virgin, Holy Mary of Guadalupe.

Information has been shared in our weekly parish bulletins regarding Bishop Checchio’s intention for this consecration is to ask for the graces needed for a New Evangelization and he is placing it under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The purpose is to stir up an increased holiness of life, a renewed commitment to living the Gospel message to the fullest, and the enthusiastic willingness, among the faithful, to share that message to others.

Copies of the Personal Consecration prayer book can be found at the back of each of our churches, along with envelopes for a $3 donation to cover the costs of printing or they may be downloaded from https://lightingheartsonfire.org/personal-consecration.

Call to Action

Support the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act!The Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act (CWPIA) protects the religious liberties of child welfare service providers, including adoption and foster care agencies.  The Act would prohibit the federal government and any state that receives certain federal funding from discriminating against child welfare service providers on the basis that they decline to provide a child welfare service that conflicts with their sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions.  The Inclusion Act is needed because child welfare service providers are being discriminated against because of their sincerely held religious beliefs and moral convictions.  For example, certain religiously-affiliated charities in Massachusetts, Illinois, California, and the District of Columbia have had to stop adoption and foster care services because of requirements imposed upon them to place children in households headed by two persons of the same sex.  Also, women and men who want to place their children for adoption should be free to choose from a diversity of adoption agencies, including those that share the parents' religious beliefs and moral convictions.  The Inclusion Act recognizes and respects this parental choice.  The Inclusion Act has been introduced in both the House (H.R. 1881) and the Senate (S. 811).Contact your Representative & Senators today!
