The meeting will consist of the regular monthly devotions: recitation of the Holy Rosary with meditations written by Saint Padre Pio and the chaplet of Divine Mercy. It has been a Catholic tradition through the centuries to meditate on the Way of the Cross, so that it becomes a way of life. Mary, the Mother of Jesus, made the first way of the cross. These stations called Mary’s Way of the Cross, will be prayed in an attempt to present that viewpoint. Bring a friend. Call 978-683-1193.
