St Magdalene - Prayer group
Church is the spiritual embodiment of Jesus Christ and His Mission (Col 2:9). It is the spiritual powerhouse of all our activities. Being a spiritual organisation our strength lies in prayer. It is the source and destiny of all our church activities. Though we are living in the world but not of this world (Jn 15:19) we need power from on high (Lk 24:49).
Exposition to the Blessed Sacrament, Rosary, Vespers, Benediction and intercessory prayers are included. Willingness to pray for our church is the only condition to this prayer group.

Are you or someone you know interested in knowing about the Catholic faith?
