Prayerful Resources

From Fr. Mark

April 20, 2020

Hello Holy Family Parishioners,

We received good news over the weekend that we have been approved for our loan request from the Payroll Protection Plan (PPP). This means that we will be able to continue to pay our staff. This is a great help to our budget. Thank you to all of you who have sent in your offertory and for those who have signed up for automatic withdrawal or credit card payment. Whatever you can send us is greatly appreciated.

Below are some websites that you may find helpful with your prayer and spirituality. There are already some available on the website so these are additional ones you may find helpful.

  • aleteia.org - This is a Catholic website that is full of all kinds of articles and devotionals. Lots of good stuff.

  • YouTube.com/DioceseOfWilm - This is where you will find Bishop Malooly’s Saturday afternoon Mass from the Cathedral of St. Peter as well as some other videos.

  • DivineOffice.org - This is a website (also available as an app) where you can pray the Liturgy of Hours with others or just with yourself. This is a great resource and way to learn how to pray the Liturgy of the Hours.

  • ComePrayTheRosary.org - You can pray the rosary with others at this website.

  • Here is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy in Song.

  • LTP.org - This is the website of Liturgy Training Publications. They are offering a daily prayer that can be used with your families – this may be especially helpful on Sundays.

I hope these resources will help you stay connected to your faith and church as we wait until we can gather together once again as a community of faith and celebrate the Eucharist together.

Know that I remember all of you at Mass every day. I am celebrating Mass either in my chapel at home with my mother (and Scarlett our pug, who is very respectful when we are celebrating Mass. She sits just outside the door), or alone at the parish.

Stay safe and healthy, and stay home.

God Bless,
Fr Mark Kelleher
