O Mary, Queen of Peace, Pray for Us

 

We will begin each hour with the recitation of the hourly prayer, followed only by silent prayer unless it’s an hour that includes the Divine Office.  The hourly prayer will be the Litany of Loreto <HERE>.  This Marian litany is a beautiful prayer that calls upon the many titles of Our Lady and implores her intercession.

Each hour has been assigned a special intention except those during which a daily Mass will be celebrated.  These are listed on the right sidebar of this webpage.

 

Personal Intentions

Cards will be available to enter your own personal intentions for which you pledge to pray during the 24 Hours.  You may place this card in the basket in front of the altar at any time.  If you are unable to attend the 24 Hours but would like your intentions included, Father Dan Leary invites you to email him directly at fatherdanleary@gmail.com and he will include these for you.

Spiritual Bouquet cards will also be available if you wish to offer your holy hour and prayers for a specific person. Simply fill out the card and send it to the person for whom you prayed as your gift to them.

 

When You Come

  • The doors near the altar will be open during the 24 Hours. The entry doors from Kemp Mill Road will be open during the 24 Hours from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. The circle doors will remain locked.
  • Please enter using the doors near the altar during evening and night hours.  Please park in the small lot near the Early Learning Center during evening and night hours.
  • Please sign in at one of the welcome tables located at the handicapped entrance or at the midpoint of the church.  Please sign out when you leave.
  • Please dress modestly and appropriately, especially during overnight adoration. Consider bringing a sweater or light jacket as the church may get cool.
  • Prayer booklets will be provided that include the public prayers offered each hour.

 

Prayer Captains

Prayer Captains are responsible for leading the public prayers at the beginning of each hour and any additional announcements as necessary.

 

Novena Prayer

A novena is made up of nine days of focused prayer and meditation to obtain special graces, implore special favors, or make special petitions. We invite you to unite in prayer using this adaptation of a prayer by Saint John Paul II for nine days beginning on May 31 and ending on June 8, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and continue to pray for Christ’s peace in our world, our communities and gathering places, our families, and in our hearts.

O Mary, Queen of Peace

Mother of mercy and of hope, obtain for men, women, and families the precious gift of peace; peace in hearts and families, in communities and among peoples; peace above all for those nations, especially our own, where there is a lack of love and people fight and suffer every day.

Obtain the grace from Our Lord that every human being of every race and culture may encounter and accept Jesus, who came down to earth to give His peace to us.  We pray that your intercession may protect us and all people from hatred and discord, and direct our hearts into the ways of peace.

Help us to hear the Lord and know that He is near; to trust in His mercy and allow His peace to settle in our souls.

O Mary, Queen of Peace, give us Christ, the world’s true Peace!
