Holy Hour and Healing Servce

This is the First Friday of the month. We will have the Holy Hour and Healing service in St Joseph Church at 4:30pm instead of the normal 5pm time. All are welcome and join us in adoration. You need not be Catholic to adore our Lord Jesus. This holy hour focuses especially on those who may need physical, spiritual or emotion healing. If a person cannot attend, another person may stand in their place and ask for the healing of that person.

After the Holy Hour we will meditate on the Stations of the Cross at 5:30pm.
