New Closing Prayer at the End of Mass

Father Damian wishes to send us off after each Mass with a prayer to shield us from harm and evil. Beginning the first weekend of Advent we will join together and pray the Prayer to St. Michael immediately after the Recessional Song and then end with “O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, All Praise & All Thanksgiving Be Every Moment Thine (3x’s). 

The Prayer of St. Michael will be in the inside cover of the new missalette for those of us who have not memorized it. We will no longer pray the Prayer for Peace. Father Damian really does love us. He wants to make sure we are truly protected before we leave the church.  One more reason not to leave church early! What a blessing!!!!!
