First Saturday Devotion
First Saturday Devotions are a powerful means for our parish and families to grow in holiness. In our respective apostolic work, we have the First Saturday Devotion at St. Thomas the Apostle Church. There are Confessions from 7:30am-8:15am. The Rosary starts at 7:50am before Mass at 8:30am. All are invited to join in this beautiful devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Mass will be in the Novus Ordo (new order) English form with some Latin inserted at parts.
The Blessed Virgin Mary told Sr. Lucia at Fatima, "I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me."
