Prayer Opportunities & Ministries
Join us for Eucharistic Adoration – precious time spent in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament – on the second weekend of every month, from immediately after the 4:30 p.m. Saturday Mass until immediately prior to the 8:30 a.m. Sunday Mass. Remember that the only time our Lord asked the Apostles for anything was the night He went into agony. Not for activity did he plead but for an hour of companionship.
Adoration occurs in the Church, and we strive to have two or more adorers every hour. If you are interested in being one of them, you can sign up here. If you would like to submit a prayer intention, please do so here. Questions? Contact Alice Wycklendt.
Praying the Rosary
St. Robert offers opportunities to pray the Rosary in the Church at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and 8:00 a.m. Sunday (prior to the 4:30 and 8:30 Masses). Join us! Prayers are led from the Sanctuary, and no prior notice or reservation is necessary if you’d like to be present. Praying the Rosary is an excellent way to become more familiar with the lives of Jesus and Mary, and to reflect on their meaning.
Cor Jesu is a weekly intimate encounter with Christ. Through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Eucharistic Adoration and Mass, we are given the opportunity to be drawn deeper into the Heart of Jesus. It is a great space to meet peers who also desire to encounter Christ and seek fellowship. Cor Jesu provides a mid-week recharge in the midst of our chaotic lives. Click here for more information and weekly homilies.
A network of St. Robert parishioners prays daily for intentions submitted each week. The Prayer Network could be compared to the four men who carried the paralytic to Jesus (Mark 2:1-12). Members receive the requests once a week unless the need is more urgent. If you have a serious need you would like lifted up in prayer, please submit a request.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Do you knit or crochet? Would you like to help someone in need of prayer? Makers of these special, hand-knit shawls pray before the shawl is made, pray while working on the shawl, and pray after it is finished. When completed, the shawl is given to someone in need of prayer. (We are currently in need of additional ministry members to knit or crochet. If you would be interested in helping, please contact Debe Dannecker in the Parish Office, (414)-332-1164, ext. 3010, or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Seven Sisters Apostolate
The Seven Sisters Apostolate is a call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that a Holy Hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest or bishop—a “holy wasting” (cf. Mt. 26:10) or lavishing of prayer for his deeper conformity to Christ. Women at St. Robert Parish make up two groups – one for each of our parish priests. For more information on the Apostolate visit sevensistersapostolate.org. If you would like to get involved with the Seven Sisters at St. Robert, please contact Elizabeth Zimmer at email@example.com.
