“Jesus said, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve’” (Luke 4:8, citing Deutoronomy 6:13).
The most important event every week at Little Flower is our worship and praise of God. We gather weekly at Holy Eucharist – what popularly is called “Mass” – to acknowledge God as the Creator and Savior of us all. During worship or liturgy, we exalt Almighty God while seeking to humble ourselves. By means of worship or liturgy, we set our sights squarely on God, marveling upon all the good things God has done for us and exclaiming His name alone to be holy.
MASS (from the Latin “missa” meaning “mission” or “sending forth”) is celebrated Monday through Thursday at 8:15 a.m., and Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. Every weekend we celebrate four Masses – Saturday 4:30 p.m., Sunday 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Taking to heart changing behaviors of people and interest in a more contemporary experience of Mass, we now offer a weekend Mass on Sunday 5:30 p.m. during which we use Praise and Worship Music and provide preaching especially tailored for the younger church – teens, collegians, young professionals, young couples and families. Everyone is welcome – please join us!
Opportunities for those who are homebound to view or listen to Sunday Mass include:
EWTN 8:00am and 12:00 noon

As a special weekly devotional opportunity EUCHARISTIC ADORATION is open to all on Wednesdays from 8:45 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Holy Hour for Life is offered from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. with BENEDICTION immediately following. Unlike Mass, people come for as long as they are able.
The SACRAMENT OF RECONCILATION – also called “Penance” or “Confession” – is available 30 minutes before every Mass except Christmas and Easter. The Reconciliation Room (or “Confessional”) is located in the Saint John Paul II Room, which is off the Narthex.
