Focolare "Thought for the Day"
Ministry Lead: Frank Devereux | [email protected] | (404) 933-5163
Each morning, a spiritual message is sent by email to participants to help us live our day in unity and love. If you would like to receive these messages, please request so by email to [email protected].

Lectio Divina
Ministry Lead: Deacon Norm Keller | [email protected] | (678) 594-6597
Lectio Divina is Latin for divine reading of Scripture. We discover how God is speaking to our hearts. We meditate on a different Bible passage each month. Lectio Divina is a personal encounter with God. No experience is necessary, only an open heart. Due to the pandemic, we are not meeting in person. Rather, the monthly scripture selection and meditation is emailed to members for their own at-home reflection. Members are encouraged to email Deacon Norm to share any of their own thoughts about scripture with him. If anyone would like to join the Lectio Divina email list, please contact Deacon Norm to be added.

Parish Rosary (Wednesdays)
Ministry Lead: Frank Devereux | [email protected] | (404) 933-5163
Each Wednesday evening a Parish Rosary will be prayed at 7:30 PM through Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent at 7:00 PM to all those on our Rosary list each Wednesday, and participants will be admitted at 7:20 PM. If you would like to join, please request by email to: [email protected].

Perpetual Adoration
Ministry Lead: Frank Devereux | [email protected] | (404) 933-5163
Spend an intimate hour with the Lord. Some individuals commit for an hour a week, while others simply provide their email address to be notified when substitute volunteers are needed. Perpetual adoration is suspended during the pandemic, but Adoration is offered some afternoons in the Church-please see announcements for dates/times.
