Prayer Vigil

Starts: Saturday, December 31st 2011 at 5:30 pm
Ends: Sunday, January 1st 2012 at 7:59 am

All parishioners – members of our community of believers are encouraged to
assemble for an hour of prayer (not necessary in church) as part of our New Year

St John Vianney – after morning mass (9:30 – 10:30)

Sacred Heart Cathedral – Adoration & Benediction (11:00 PM – 12:00 AM)

During this prayer vigil, there should be a proclamation of God's word, and time
for meditation and prayer. Among themes that could be considered in this service
would be: reviewing the past year spiritually (repentance and thanksgiving); looking
forward in faith to beginning a new year in the service of God, the Church, and the
world; reflecting on God's people being a year nearer to eternity; praying for peace
in the world.
