All Saints Day @ Mary Immaculate Church

On this day we celebrate one of the greatest feasts in the Church, All Saints. On this day we call to mind all the saints in heaven, from those well known to all those who have died and received their eternal reward and entered into heaven. On this day we celebrate the perfecting of human nature by the grace of Christ won by his death on the Cross and call on the intercession of all of heaven!

Join us for a Missa Cantata at 7:30pm. For all Mass times see the Parish Newsletter.

All Souls Day @ Mary Immaculate Church
Nov 2 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
All Souls Day @ Mary Immaculate Church

On this day is observed the commemoration of the faithful departed, in which the Church, immediately after having offered praise for the saints in heaven, strives to aid by her powerful intercession with Christ, all those who still groan in purgatory for their purification. Join in praying for your deceased friends, relatives, benefactors, enemies, and for all the faithful departed in the most powerful way by uniting your prayers to the Sacrifice of the Mass. When they enter heaven, they will certainly not forget to pray for those who prayed for them. Photos from last years Mass for the Dead can be seen at Maria Rose Anna Photography here.

Join us for a Missa Cantata at 7:30pm. For more mass times see the parish newsletter.

Women’s Secular Oratory @ Mary Immaculate Church
Nov 6 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Women's Secular Oratory @ Mary Immaculate Church

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.

Vespers @ Mary Immaculate Church
Nov 11 @ 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Vespers @ Mary Immaculate Church

Vespers is the evening prayer of the Church and comes from the Divine Office, which is the official prayer book of the Church. From the very beginning of Christianity, Christians would sing or chant the psalms as the model of prayer to God. As time went on this form of prayer was given a set structure which led to the Divine Office. When we, as baptised Christians and members of the Body of Christ which is the Church, pray the Divine Office, we pray united as the Church for our redemption and in praise and honour of God. The Divine Office, or breviary as it is also called, with set prayers for different times throughout the day, sanctifies all the hours of the day. On Sunday we are called to sanctify the Lord’s Day in a special way, which means we are to not only assist at Mass, but also to dedicate this day to God in other ways such as spending time in prayer. The hour of Vespers is a prayer of thanksgiving towards the end of the day. As such to participate in Vespers is a very good way to help us sanctify the Lord’s Day. Join us as we chant Vespers together and give honour and glory to God.

Immaculate Conception @ Mary Immaculate Church

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 patron of our church.
