Corpus Christi Prayer Group
The Corpus Christi Prayer Group meets the second and fourth Monday of each month in the St. Joseph Room of the Multi-Purpose Building from 9:15-10:15 AM, and on the first and third Thursday of each month from 7-9 PM.
We praise and worship God for an hour, then have talks, teachings or testimonies for twenty minutes. Prayers are offered for anyone who wants or needs them. This is an open invitation for anyone. Looking to strengthen or grow in an intimate relationship with the Lord? You can do that here. This will teach you how to walk in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Divine Mercy Chaplet
Please join in praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for your intentions and those of the parish the first Wednesday of each month. The Chaplet will start at 6:00 PM on Wednesdays in the church. The Rosary will be prayed prior to the Chaplet at 5:20 PM. Our Lord said, "Through the Chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with my will". Jesus, I Trust in You!
What is the Divine Mercy Devotion?
The message & devotion to Jesus as THE DIVINE MERCY is based on the writings of St. Faustina. The message of mercy is that God loves us no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.
Stop by the informational table after each Mass on Feb. 15 & 16 to pick up a pamphlet or inquire about the Divine Mercy Devotion and how you can participate in this devotion at St. Alphonsus.
JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU!

Join us in praying the beautiful 9-week Novena starting WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19 at 6 PM in the church. Our Lord said to St. Faustina, “Through the Chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with my will.”

This ministry is for special needs and urgent prayer requests. Prayer requests will be received by the chairperson and passed to those serving in this ministry by telephone the day it is received. This ensures a quick response for prayers. We have two lines, daytime and evening. If you are not able to receive calls during the day you will be assigned to the evening line. If you have a physical limitation or are homebound and wish to be involved, this is the perfect ministry for you as the only requirement is a telephone and some time.
