The New Testament: [ Mark ] - [ Luke ] - [ John ] - [ Matthew ]
Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Holy Rosary

In the Holy Rosary we focus on 20 events or mysteries in the life and death of Jesus and meditate on how we share with Mary in the redemptive work of Christ. Reading a pertinent passage from the Bible helps to deepen mediation on a particular mystery.

Begin the Rosary by praying the Apostles' Creed.
At each large bead, pray the Lord's Prayer.
At each small bead, pray the Holy Mary.

At the first 3 beads pray a Hail Mary for: Faith, Hope and Love.

For each mystery, begin with the Lord's Prayer, then the Hail Mary 10 times and end with Glory Be to the Father.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Act of Contrition

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good. I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.

Our Saviour Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name my God, have mercy.
