Our Lady of Perpetual Help

 

All joined in continuous prayer with Mary the mother of Jesus. Act of the Apostles 1:14



Holy Eucharist Parish is happy to offer this opportunity for the parish to join in the worship of the Eucharist and be part of the Novena Session to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

 

In this novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, we pay tribute to the Blessed Virgin Mary and ask for her assistance. The Blessed Mother with her Divine Son has helped many find strength in difficult situations, comfort in sorrows and answers to prayers.  

 

In this Icon, we see how Jesus, while safely cradled in his mother’s arms, looks anxiously at St. Gabriel the Archangel, who holds the cross and nails for His Crucifixion. St. Michael the Archangel, at left, holds the lance, spear, and the vessel of vinegar and gall fall part of our Lord's Passion.

 

As at the foot of the Cross, Mary is always ready to intercede with Jesus on our behalf. We hear again Jesus words: Behold your mother. Like the beloved Disciple we, too, make a place for Mary in our home and life.

 

Novena Session: Every Second and Fourth Saturday 5.00 pm
