Upcoming Events

Alpha Omega Mother's Day Rose Sale - May 7 & 8, 2016

 



SMV BEAUTIFICATION DAY - MAY 14, 2016

 



SMV HUMAN ROSARY - MAY 15, 2016

This year we are having our Human Rosary on May 15th, Pentecost Sunday, and the Knights of Columbus and the Spiritual Life Commission would like you to join us. We will meet outside around the statue of Mary, weather permitting, at 12:45 pm, and chairs will be provided. In the case of inclement weather, we will meet in the Parish Center.

So come and “Be A Bead,” which simply means reciting one Hail Mary or one Our Father. Families are encouraged to come and pray together. If it’s been a while since you’ve said a Rosary, we will be passing out a little “cheat sheet” to help you along. Extra rosaries will also be on hand.
