FYI, there are two Marian prayer services I know about next week, one in Boston and one in Lowell. Nice opportunity to pay special respects to Mary during her month of May, and with very pretty hymns too! Both are free and open to the public.
Monday, May 4th, 7 PM - St. Margaret's Church, Lowell, MA.
The Blessed Virgin Sodality of St. Margaret's Parish in Lowell is holding a Spring Rosary and Prayer Hour on Monday, May 4th at 7 PM. The prayer hour will include reciting the rosary, the Magnificat, chanting the Litany of Loreto and singing Marian hymns. All are invited to join us in this traditional prayer service honoring Mary. Refreshments will be served afterwards. The address is 374 Stevens Street, Lowell, MA, in the Our Lady of Lourdes chapel (downstairs) . For more information, please contact the St. Margaret's parish rectory at 978-454-5143.
