Then join us for our first youth group meeting to be held on Sunday, December 3, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Carmelite Hall.
For this first meeting, we also invite the parents to attend the youth night for some fun, games and food. Come share your thoughts about the goals you have for the youth group.
In August of this year, a group of parishioners met to begin to form a committee to establish a shrine to honor the Five Discalced Carmelite Martyrs who at one time served at Santa Cruz Parish.
In the last few weeks we have heard the short biographies of five Discalced Carmelite Friars who gave their lives for the faith and who had an impact here in Southern Arizona and here in Santa Cruz Parish. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of faith. By their ministry here and in other parts of the world, they planted and nurtured the seed of faith and brought us to know and love God. As they lived and died for their faith, we are called to live and put into practice what we believe by God's grace.
Prayer before the Lord Jesus Christ, truly and really present, Body, Blood Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist, is an opportunity to develop and increase our intimate relationship with the Lord.
Every Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed for Adoration. During the time of Adoration the Divine Mercy Chaplet will be prayed at 3:05 p.m., the Rosary in Spanish at 6:00 p.m. and in English at 7:00 p.m. The evening will conclude with Solemn Benediction at 9:00 p.m.
Confessions will be heard beginning at 6:00 p.m.
"Could you not keep watch with Me for one hour?" (Matthew 26:40)
