Prayer Opportunities

Pray the Holy Rosary with us on Mondays

October 2, 16 , 23 & 30

In honor of the month of the Rosary, we will be praying the Rosary on Mondays in October at 6:30 p.m. in the Shrine Church, immediately followed by the Novena.  All are welcome.

Join our Tuesday Prayer Group beginning October 10 in Leo Hall

6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.

To register, contact Alycia at or 717.564.1321 x 132.

Do you find it easy to pray?  Do you hear God’s voice in your daily life and know how to respond?  For most of us the answer is no, sometimes finding it hard to pray.  Join us on October 10, 17, 31 and November 7 and 14 from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. in Leo Hall.  Come learn how to be more aware of his close presence and overcome distractions.  As you grow closer to God, you will also grow in your relationship with those around you.

Grief is a natural reaction to loss, and mourning is our intentional response.  Parishioners who have experienced the loss of a loved one are invited to participate in a weekly Support Group program based on the Grieving with Great Hope series.  Facilitators are gentle, caring individuals who themselves have experienced the loss of a loved one.  Participants need not attend all sessions.  Registration is not required but requested for planning purposes.  If interested, contact the parish office at 717.564.1321.

The Silence of Mary Home.

September 10, 2023

9:30 AM—completed    Leo Hall


Founded by Sue and Very Rudy in 1999, The Silence of Mary Home is committed to serving Jesus in the chronically poor, whether they live within The Silence of Mary family homes, or in the inner cities of Harrisburg. Working closely with other agencies, they identify individuals that do not have a home or place to go due to mental illnesses or other impairment, or physical disabilities. They may be on a housing list, timed out of a shelter, or kicked out of the home in which they were staying. They are both young and old; they may stay for a short time or for years.  Once a person is a member of The Silence of Mary family, regardless of their living situation, they remain in contact. For many, The Silence of Mary has become a resource for life.

To assist in their mission, we are collecting personal hygiene items throughout July and August.

Needed items include sample size:

  • Shampoo
  • Lotions (hand or body)
  • Shaving cream
  • Toothpaste
  • Soap
  • Deodorant

Other needs include toothbrushes, razors, and washcloths, toilet paper. 

On Saturday, September 11, 2021, we will participate in the National Day of Service and Remembrance by sorting and assembling these items into personal comfort kits, which will be distributed by The Silence of Mary Home.   Click here to sign up today!
