— Public Prayer & Private Devotions —
Celebrating Our Faith More Joyfully
 
 
 
 
Public Prayer:
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our goal is to stimulate an Evangelizing Liturgy (to change peoples’ Weekend Experience) through formation, mindful and fruitful participation of the people of God, so that, by celebrating the Paschal Mystery of our Faith, both the theological life and Christian commitment will be strengthened.
 
Private Prayer:
 
 
 
The Lord invites to “watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.” We believe that God tirelessly calls each of us to mystically experience a personal encounter with Himself. Our Goal here is to offer God’s people different forms of Christian prayer, so that through pious devotions, the life of the faithful may be conformed to Christ in the Holy Spirit to the glory of God the Father.
