Inspired by St Philip Neri, Women’s Secular Oratory are evening sessions of prayer for women based on the classic model of mental prayer. The sessions include a meditation, that is, a brief reading from a spiritual work or scripture and a short talk on the reading, followed by time for silent prayer. Then, to help us apply to our lives from what we have gathered from the reading and prayer, this is followed by a discussion to aid us in forming concrete resolutions that we can apply to our lives. The sessions last for one hour. We encourage you to come along and be a part of something that will help you to grow in Christian perfection and empower you to live out the mission of the laity.
Today we celebrate the Immaculate Conception of Mary, that is, from the first moment of Mary’s conception in the womb of her mother, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Saviour of the human race, she was preserved immune from all stain of original sin. Let us celebrate her purity and call upon Mary for our aid. This feast day is particularly important to our parish as Our Lady under the title of the Immaculate Conception is the patroness of our church.
