UIW Mission & Ministry Offers Prayerful Support During Pandemic

While it has been very difficult to gather in prayer during this time of physical distancing, the need for prayer is heavily felt. Beginning Wednesday, July 22, you are invited to gather to pray the Rosary each Wednesday from 12 -12:30 p.m. As offered in the blog Why Pray the Rosary, this traditional Catholic devotional prayer “can slow us down, calm our hearts, and enable us to rest in God’s presence. It draws out the deepest desires in our souls, desires for God and God alone.”

We will gather at Zoom ID 210 829 2736 to pray the Glorious Mysteries, led by Mission and Ministry. You can also join the meeting at this link. Here is a link to the Glorious Mysteries Amid Covid-19 to be used. It will be provided during the gathering.

Contact Beth Villarreal, director of Campus Ministry for questions or more information 210-829-2736 or villaret@uiwtx.edu.

Triduum 2020

Triduum 2020

This resource has been provided to help us celebrate the most sacred days of our liturgical year – the Triduum. For each day, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil, there is a leader’s guide, in PDF format. Open the file in your computer, tablet (iPad), or smart phone (iPhone); it could be easier to facilitate the prayer if you print out the guide for each day. It is suggested that the leader familiarize themselves with the guide to be prepared to lead the prayer.

Incarnate Word Day

Incarnate Word Day

March 25 is the Feast of the Annunciation, the Feast Day of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word. Today, we gather together remotely, and pray for the needs of the world at this crucial and dangerous time in our collective history. At noon we will take together a minute of silence, and then recite the Angelus. Pope Francis has also asked that the whole People of God take a moment of silence at noon on March 25 and recite the Our Father. We join our prayer with that of the Holy Father’s.
