First Saturday Devotion

The devotion of First Saturdays, as requested by Our Lady of Fatima, carries with it the assurance of the graces necessary for salvation at the hour of death. However, to derive profit from such a great promise of Our Lady, the devotion must be properly understood and duly performed.

The requirements as stipulated by Our Lady are: 
“…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 15 minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with
the intention of making reparation to my Immaculate Heart.”

Please join us at 9:00 a.m. Mass. After the Mass, we gather for the recitation of the Holy Rosary, and for the Exposition and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

St. Mary Immaculate Adoration Chapel

We are excited that we were able to re-open our Adoration Chapel for in-person adoration last week.  We are still missing some artwork and new chairs, but those will be added when they are delivered.  It’s exciting to be able to pray in person again!

Hours for the Adoration Chapel are Monday at 9:30am (after the 9am Mass) until Thursday night at midnight.  The doors will be open from 6am to 9pm every day.  After 9pm, you will need an access code to get into the building.  Please email adorationsmip@gmail.com for the code.  You will not be able to get in without it; and overnight adorers are instructed not to let anyone in, for safety reasons.

Please keep in mind the following:

  1. At this time, masks are required throughout the parish campus, including the Adoration Chapel.  Please be mindful and charitable about this.
  2. The chapel is for quiet, individual prayer. No group is authorized to hold any group prayer out loud in the chapel, out of respect for those who wish to pray quietly. 

Yours in Christ and His Blessed Mother,
Father Pat Mulcahy, Pastor

Capilla de Adoración de Santa María Inmaculada

Estamos emocionados de poder reabrir nuestra Capilla de Adoración para la adoración en persona la semana pasada. Todavía nos faltan algunas obras de arte y sillas nuevas, pero se agregarán cuando sean entregadas. ¡Es emocionante poder volver a orar en persona!

El horario de la Capilla de Adoración es de lunes a las 9:30 a. m. (después de la misa de las 9 a. m.) hasta el jueves a la medianoche. Las puertas estarán abiertas de 6:00 a 21:00 todos los días. Después de las 9:00 p. m., necesitará un código de acceso para ingresar al edificio. Envíe un correo electrónico a adorationsmip@gmail.com para obtener el código. No podrá entrar sin él; ya los adoradores nocturnos han sido instruidos en no dejar entrar a nadie, por razones de seguridad.

Tenga en cuenta lo siguiente:

  1. Por el momento, se requieren máscaras en todo el campus de la parroquia, incluida la Capilla de Adoración. Por favor, sea consciente y caritativo al respecto.
  2. La capilla es para la oración individual y silenciosa. Ningún grupo está autorizado a realizar una oración grupal en voz alta en la capilla, por respeto a aquellos que desean orar en silencio.

Suyo en Cristo y Su Santísima Madre,
Padre Pat Mulcahy, Pastor

Kaplica Najświętszej Maryi Panny Niepokalanej

Cieszymy się że w zeszłym tygodniu mogliśmy ponownie otworzyć naszą Kaplicę do osobistej adoracji. Jeszcze brakuje niektórych obrazów i nowych krzeseł, ale zostaną one dodane dostarczone. Cieszymy się że znowu możemy modlić się osobiście.

Godziny otwarcia Kaplicy Adoracji to poniedziałek o 9:30 (po Mszy o 9 rano) do czwartku wieczorem o północy. Drzwi będą otwarte codziennie od 6:00 do 21:00. Po godzinie 21:00 będzie potrzebować kodu dostępu aby wejść do budynku. Aby uzyskać kod, musisz wysłać e-mail na adres adorationsmip@gmail.com. Bez kodu, osoba nie będzie mógła wejść; a adoratorzy  prezez  noc są pouczeni aby nikogo nie wpuszczać z powodów bezpieczeństwa.

Proszę zanotować:

  1. W tym czasie maski są wymagane w całym kampusie parafialnym, także w Kaplicy Adoracji. Proszę bądźcie uważni i miłosierni odniesieniu do tego wymogu.
  2. Kaplica służy do cichej, indywidualnej modlitwy. Żadna grupa nie może głośno odmawiać grupowych modlitw z szacunku dla tych, którzy chcą modlić się pocichu.

Twój w Chrystusie i Jego Błogosławionej Matce,
Kś. Pat Mulcahy, proboszcz

Prayer Intentions

Due to the ongoing health crisis, we’ve moved our Book of Intentions entirely online. If you would like for us to add something to it, please fill out the form here:

Our prayer intention candles have been moved to the Narthex and candles may now be lit directly by parishioners. However, if you prefer to send your prayer request to us, we are happy to light a candle for you. For your donation of $3.00, we will physically light one of the candles in the Narthex for your intention.

We hope that making prayer candle intentions available in person and online, will help to further illuminate your prayer life. We are grateful for your donation.

Please indicate your intention in the “In honor of” field. If more of an explanation is needed, please include that information in the Comments section.

We are creating a list of prayer candle intentions for our online bulletin.  With your permission, your intention could also be added to this list to allow others to join in your prayer.

To request a prayer intention and make your donation, please go to:


Do you care for a loved one? An ill spouse, an aging parent, or a child with disabilities?

We invite you to connect with other caregivers. Nourish for Caregivers supports the practical, emotional, and spiritual needs of all who offer care for others during this time of uncertainty and anxiety.

Monthly meetings will be held via Zoom at 7:00pm on the third Thursday of the month.

SMIP Sacramental Reopening Volunteer Form
