Monthly Holy Hour of Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty

The monthly Holy Hour of Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty  will be held on the first Saturday of every month from 8:30 am to 9:30 am (after the 8:00 am Mass for the Sanctity of Life and Marriage) at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed and a beautiful rosary will be offered, along with prayer and reflection.  Gather in the Adoration Chapel. Everyone is welcome. 

“In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration…It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering.” - Pope Benedict XVI

The Reluctant Saint –
St. Joseph of Cupertino    
DVD   1962   1h 45m  NR
The true story of a 17th-century Italian peasant who becomes a Franciscan friar after his mother pressures a hesitant Abbot to accept her son into the monastery -- and a bishop takes a shine to him. Upon being ordained a priest (thanks to a string of remarkable events), the friar begins to levitate while praying, leading some to question his sanctity.

A profound and humorous film for all ages.
