Prayer Groups at OLQM
People pray together to worship God, share their faith and encourage one another in the Christian life. As a diverse parish community, we have several prayer groups with a different emphasis within the groups.
Charismatic Prayer Group
The group holds its prayer meeting every Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the rectory basement (no summer break). Group meetings consist of spontaneous prayer, scripture reading and the exercise of charismatic gifts. Members engage in Bible Study (ongoing every 2nd Friday of the month); prepare one of the altars for the yearly Corpus Christi procession; and assist in the celebration of the Feast of St. Lorenzo Ruiz in September.
The group also arranges occasional bus pilgrimages to the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in the spring and the Blue Army Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in the fall. Watch the bulletin or the News & Events page for details on upcoming pilgrimages.
Newcomers are welcome. If interested, please leave a message for Remy Leal at 718-268-6251.
St. Pio Prayer Group
St. Pio of Pietrelcina — also known as Padre Pio — never tired of praying. His prayer group meets on the second Wednesday of each month after the 12:05 p.m. Daily Mass.
If interested, please come and introduce yourself at one of the Wednesday prayer meetings.
The Rosary is the most precious and beautiful prayer we have. The Rosary is said daily, Monday through Friday, after our 12:05 p.m. Mass. A Living Rosary is prayed twice a year (May and October) in the church plaza on Ascan Avenue. Watch our News & Events page for announcements and dates.
