March Prayer of the Month

We fly to your patronage, O Holy Mother of God.  Despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us from all dangers, O ever Glorious and Blessed Virgin.  Amen

April Prayer of the Month

The Protection Prayer

Lord we beg you to visit this house and banish from it all the deadly power of the enemy.  May your holy angels dwell here to keep us in peace and May your blessings be upon us always.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

May Prayer of the Month

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.
