Monthly Family Prayer

Pick from one of the prayers below for your monthly family prayer activity.

You must complete this with at least one other family member in your household.

It is ok if you have done these prayers with your family in the past.

Just remember, a different prayer must be chosen each month.

3-Minute Retreat

English & Spanish

"3-Minute Retreats invite you to take a short prayer break right at your computer. Spend some quiet time reflecting on a Scripture passage. Knowing that not everyone prays at the same pace, you have control over the pace of the retreat. After each screen, a Continue button will appear. Click it when you are ready to move on. If you are new to online prayer, the basic timing of the screens will guide you through the experience." - from Loyola Press

Vocation Chalice

At every weekend mass, a family is invited to take home the Vocation Chalice to pray everyday that week for all vocations. The week commitment should be completed BEFORE your next class so you have time to fill out the Family Prayer form to tell us how it went.

This is a great option!

Meal Time Prayer Additions

Here are a few different approaches to spicing up the prayer portion of your family meals. Pick one from the list provided in the link below.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Take some time to Adore Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. The Adoration Chapel is located on the side of the church (by the Mary Statue). You can get the code to the chapel door from the receptionist in the Pastoral Center. Be sure to sign the guest book in the chapel with the date and time of your visit. 


The repetition in the Rosary is meant to lead one into restful and contemplative prayer related to each Mystery. The gentle repetition of the words helps us to enter into the silence of our hearts, where Christ's spirit dwells. The Rosary can be said privately or with a group.​
