Night of Worship and Ministry

As we worship, see the Lord minister to His people in power!

Praise is illustrated throughout the Bible in verses offering gratitude for God’s blessings, and declaring the Good News with song and dance. The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines praise as “adoring God, praying to him, offering him the worship that belongs to him, fulfilling the promises and vows made to him.” Here at St. Mary’s, we believe strongly in the power of praise, and we seek to make it especially real through the Night of Worship and Ministry (NOWM).

Every 4th Friday of the month, NOWM invites all people to a free evening of extended praise and worship, where individuals can experience fellowship, receive teaching and healing, and exercise the charismatic gifts like words of knowledge, prophecy, and prayer.

Beginning at 7:00 PM, those gathered inside St. Mary’s church are greeted with a brief welcome and introduction, followed by a generous time of spirit-filled praise and worship led by the Music Ministry. Each month, a different gifted speaker inspires the people “for their edification, exhortation and comfort” (1 Cor. 14:3), leading them forward on a theme that the NOWM team discerns in advance.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, those gathered listen to testimonies, receive words of knowledge, prophecy and healing. Prayer teams are available to serve attentively, carefully and non-judgementally to anyone in need.

This beautiful and grace-filled evening concludes at 9:00 PM with time for light refreshments and fellowship in the parish hall.
