Mass times for 15 August are 12:05 pm and 6:30 pm.

 

Father in heaven, all creation rightly gives you praise, for all life and all holiness come from you. In the plan of your wisdom she who bore the Christ in her womb was raised body and soul in glory to be with him in heaven. May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness and join in her hymn of endless love and praise. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

 

Blessing of the Herbs

It is a traditional custom for people to bring fresh herbs to church to be blessed on the Solemnity of the Assumption . If you have an herb garden, be sure to cut some and bring them for a special blessing! The blessing of the herbs will take place at the Masses on Thursday, 15 August. Please come early and place your herbs on the table around the Lady Altar.

Bicentennial Prayer

Heavenly Father, source of all good things, in every generation You gather a people to yourself and endow them with the means to spread Your Gospel.

Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, you have formed the parishes and missions of South Carolina into one body working to build your Kingdom across our seven deaneries of Aiken, Beaufort, Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, and Rock Hill.

Through Your Holy Spirit, give us generous and sacrificial hearts as our diocese enters its third century. Transform us into good stewards of the blessings You bestow upon each one of us.

As one family in faith, we pray that our gifts strengthen our parishes and missions, form Catholics to Believe in the Gospel, and guide us to live your Gospel through social outreach.

We ask all of this through our one Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.

God our Father, Giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care. You are the rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people. Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of  our nation’s leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Your will. Through the intersession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the “culture of death.” Lead us into a new millennium of life. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
