First Friday – On the first Friday of each month, we hold First Friday Devotions in Honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Devotions usually begin shortly before the 12:05 p.m. Mass, during which we offer our Communions in reparation to Jesus for the insults he receives every day by those who ei-ther do not recognize Him or disrespect Him and His enduring love. The Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and other prayers are recited immediately following the Mass. If you are interested in leading the First Friday Devotions, please contact Christina Pride at 646-912-3865.
Mercy Meals – One of our service projects in which members volunteer their time and resources to provide a meal for families in the parish with a family member hospitalized, deployed or simply in need of our assistance. If you are interested in facilitating this ministry, please contact Christina Pride at 646-912-3865.
Prayer Circle – Do you have a loved one who is ill or do you just need someone to say an extra prayer for you or someone you know? The prayer circle is a group of present and past members of our parish who pray individually for requests. An email is compiled weekly and sent to our members. Please contact Licia Rothfuss at

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel
Patroness of the Military Council of Catholic Women

Lord of heavenly wisdom,
Who has given us your own Mother Mary
To be our guide and counselor in this our lives,
Grant that in all things we may have the grace
To seek maternal instruction and
To profit by it in humility and love.
O Mother of Good Counsel,
Patroness of the Military Council
Of Catholic Women,
Help us to understand and fulfill
The mind and will of your Divine Son,
Jesus Christ.
Under the blessing of the Father,
And by the power of the Holy Spirit,
May we be responsible and intelligent
Daughters of the Church.
May we labor in the spirit of renewal
To realize more perfectly
The Kingdom of God here below,
As the only true preparation for our share
In the Kingdom of Heaven.
This prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel was composed by the Most Reverend Robert J. Dwyer, D.D., Bishop of Reno for the occasion of the 33rd national convention of the NCCW.
