Getting Involved Spiritually
Come to the St. Bede Adoration Chapel for peace. Come to thank God for all the blessings He showers upon you and your family. Come to the chapel with your needs, petitions and problems. Come to the chapel and you will feel refreshed, strengthened, and better able to deal with life’s challenges.
Our Risen Savior Jesus Christ, fully present in the Blessed Sacrament, is waiting there for you. He is not looking to judge, but to heal! His arms are opened wide to give us His Merciful Love, which is beyond all understanding.
The Medal of the Immaculate Conception, or Miraculous Medal, was manifested to Sister Catherine Larborue , Sisters of Charity, and was originally cast in 1832. The Central Association, based in Philadelphia, PA, was established in 1915 to spread devotion to Mary Immaculate through her Miraculous Medal. Its secondary purpose is to help young men become priests, to support infirmed priests, and assist the poor.
Divine Mercy is the name of the devotion to the greatest attribute of God, His infinite Love and Mercy. Throughout the Old Testament, the prophets and kings extolled God’s Mercy, “His Mercy endures forever.” Our time in history especially requires this extraordinary devotion. Pope John Paul II said, “Humanity will not find peace until it turns faithfully to Divine Mercy.”
Devotion to the Divine Mercy is celebrated in our parish every week at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings.
From the earliest times Christians have retraced the footsteps of Jesus on the way to Calvary. We relive the passion of our Lord believing that the way of the cross, led not only to Christ’s death, but to new life eternal.
It is with faith and hope we retrace these steps to the Resurrection, and to the redemption of the world.
We pray; “We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
The Forty Hours Devotion is an opportunity to gather as a community before the Blessed Sacrament and to pray before the Lord in solemn adoration. It gives us time to deepen our appreciation of the importance of the mystery of the Eucharist in our lives. Traditionally at St. Bede Church, it begins with the celebration of Mass on Sunday and concludes on Tuesday night. The next Forty Hours Devotion at St. Bede Church will begin on Sunday Oct. 1, 2023 and conclude on Tuesday Oct. 3, 2023.
Invite Mary Into Your Home
The photograph above shows three of seven Pilgrim Virgin statues available for home visits through he Legion of Mary. Won’t you consider inviting one heavenly mother into your home for 30 days? During that time you can lean on Our Lady for guidance and counsel and deepen your prayerful life.
Remember that the quickest way to Jesus is through His
mother! She is waiting to hear from you.

There are many opportunities to gather and recite the Rosary, the prayer that helps us to meditate on the lives of Jesus and His Holy Mother. Our Lady, Herself gave us this wonderful prayer. Even though the Rosary can be recited in private, it is wonderful to pray the Rosary as a community prayer and if recited in a church, special indulgences are gained. Please come join us in prayer as we thank and praise God while asking for our special intentions.
