Level 6 PREP—Camp Caritas

June 17-21, 2024 | 8:30 am—3:00 pm
Bishop Shanahan High School

Middle schoolers attending Camp Caritas require Parish authorization. Please email Mrs. Riofski when you register so that she can notify Bishop Shanahan staff your child has permission to attend in June.

This documented step will ensure your child does not need to attend a year-long PREP next year.

Registration for Confirmation is still required for 5 meetings. The cost is $50.00 and a $40.00 Sacrament fee.

Any questions? Please contact the Church Office.

 


Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Each Sunday | 10:00 am Mass 

Children in preschool through fourth grade are invited to participate in the Children’s Liturgy. We kindly request one or two parents come back each week for assistance with bathrooms, etc.

This liturgy will conclude at the end of May for the summer.

 


Prayer to One’s Guardian Angel for a Happy Hour of Death 
By: St. Charles Borromeo
 
My good Angel, I know not when or how I shall die. It is possible I may be carried off suddenly and that, before my last sigh, I may be deprived of all intelligence. Yet, how many things I would wish to say to God on the threshold of Eternity. In the full freedom of my will today, I come to charge you to speak for me at that fearful moment. You will say to Him, then, O my good Angel:
 
That I wish to die in the Roman Catholic Apostolic Church in which all the Saints since Jesus Christ have died, and out of which there is no salvation.
 
That I ask the grace of sharing in the infinite merits of my Redeemer and that I desire to die in pressing to my lips the Cross that was bathed in His Blood.
That I detest my sins because they displease Him and I ask pardon through the love of Him, for all my enemies as I wish myself to be pardoned. That I die willingly because He orders it and I throw myself with confidence into His adorable Heart, awaiting all His Mercy. That in my inexpressible desire to go to Heaven, I am disposed to suffer everything it may please His Sovereign Justice to inflict on me.
 
That I love Him before all things, above call things and for His own sake; that I wish and hope to love Him with the Elect, His Angels and the Blessed Mother during all Eternity.
 
Do not refuse, O my Angel Guardian, to be my interpreter with GOD and to protest to Him that these are my sentiments and my will.
 
Amen
