Ways to pray

Here are ways to pray that help you talk to Jesus and have your prayers answered.

Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament

If you have troubles or special needs and want to experience the presence of Jesus, go to a church when The Blessed Sacrament is being displayed. (You can see the church bulletin for the times.)

Now you are in the presence of Jesus.

In the stillness of the church, open your heart to Jesus. Often, no words are needed. Just being with Him is enough.

Praying the Rosary

The rosary has a special place in Catholic prayer. Mary brings Jesus to us, and is the special Mother of us all.

Chaplet of Divine Mercy

The Little Way of Saint Therese

Saint Therese shows us how we can please Jesus by doing the everyday things of life with extraordinary love.


The litanies are a like beautiful stained glass windows which reflect the majesty and beauty of God.

They are prayers of praise and petitions. They move us to thank God for His mercy and love. See Litany of the Sacred Heart.

Light a Candle

Lighting a candle and saying a short prayer is a wonderful way to remember loved ones or to pray for special intentions or healing.


Pray your way

Play your own music and sing your own song of praise, thanks and love for Jesus. As you go through your day, offer small acts as prayers to Jesus.
