Can You Pray for 1 Hour?

From Darius:

Hello All,

Mike and I signed up St. Bridget to cover 40 Days for Life on Saturday, October 27.

The hours are 7 AM to 7 PM.

I am signed up from 9 AM to 11 AM.

I looked on the website signup and no one else is signed up yet.

Please consider signing up for an hour of prayer.

If you're concerned about being alone, perhaps you can bring a fellow parishioner or friend.

Research prove it makes an impact.

To sign up, go to:

40DaysForLife.com/Richmond

It takes a minute to create an account and then you can sign up for an hour.

Of course, if you just want to show up without signing up, that's fine too,  but it's helpful to know what is covered.

The location is the sidewalk in front of:

Planned Parenthood

201 N. Hamilton St.

Richmond, VA 23221

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions.  Thanks.

Peace,

Darius 397-0754

From Mike:

I would just point out that if street ministry is not your particular calling, the 40 Days for Life campaign welcomes prayer commitments not just at the vigil site, but also committing to an hour at Church or home.  Also, prayers at the vigil site or otherwise are welcome at anytime during the 40 days of the campaign, which runs through Sunday, November 4 (7 a.m. - 7 p.m. daily).  Flyers are placed on the tables at the exits of the Church and information is also contained in this week's Bulletin.

 As a reminder perhaps, St. Bridget has Mass followed by a Holy Hour on Saturday mornings beginning with Mass at 8:00 a.m.  The Holy Hours, which I believe will run into December, include praying the Rosary, with Adoration continuing until Benediction at about 9:20.  The Holy Hour is intended for the healing of the Church and abuse victims.

Peace be with you.

 Mike

A Message from The Saint Bridget New Evangelization Team

SAVE THE DATE!

The Saint Bridget New Evangelization Team (NET) invites you to gather on October 27, 2018 from 9:00am – 11:30am in the Church Hall to learn about the Saint Bridget Core Values.  You are receiving this invitation because you lead a ministry, group, or activity that adds to the vitality and spirituality of our parish.  We ask that you also share this notification with all of the members of your group, so that they, too, can save the date.  

The Core Values were developed so that no ministry or activity at the parish will exist “in a vacuum” and that everything we do will be connected in spirit and deed.  The objective of this event is for you and your fellow ministry members to understand the Core Values and begin to prayerfully consider how your ministry/activity can integrate and reflect them moving forward.  Rich Curran of the Parish Success Group will also be present to encourage us.  

We hope and pray that you and your ministry members will make every effort to be present for this gathered event!  More to come...!

Yours in Christ,

Deacon VJ
