ANGELIC WARFARE CONFRATERNITY
The Angelic Warfare Confraternity (AWC) is a spiritual community of Christ’s faithful for the pursuit and promotion of the virtue of chastity. Men and women are enrolled in order to receive assistance from God in the chaste life, under the patronage of St. Thomas Aquinas & the Blessed Virgin Mary. Each member of the AWC wears either the cord or the medal of St. Thomas, and says daily prayers to receive the special graces that the Lord pours out through the Confraternity.

SHRINE OF ST.JUDE
The Shrine of St. Jude promotes personal and common prayer. One of its tasks is to organize common prayer for our Parish, particularly the novenas from September to June.
