Marcie Reilly
Witness Speaker

Thank you so much for welcoming me to join you in praising the Lord!  My name is Marcie Reilly.  I’m a parishioner at St. Kilian’s parish in Cranberry Twp. I am also a single mother of 2 teenage boys, co-owner of a family business, & founder of North Hills NOW ministry.  Since I was a child I loved Jesus and his generous blessings throughout my life have ignited in my heart a constant song of praise! The joy He fills me with is uncontainable and my heart yearns to bring all of his children closer to him, so that everyone can feel how much He loves them! Truly, sharing Jesus with others is my mission in life and the beat of my heart. I am so grateful to be able to share my story with you and I pray that it moves your hearts as well!

December 7, 2019

7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

On Saturday December 7th, we begin a new chapter of our adventure together. We have experienced a great number of blessings thus far, and now we seek to open up the storehouse of Heaven to pour out the Everlasting Love of our Lord Jesus Christ to all of our brothers and sisters.

As we prepare our hearts for the coming of our Lord, let us contemplate His Incarnation together. Let us dwell on the reality of His Incarnation here and today, in the Blessed Sacrament and in us.

In the past we have gathered to sing carols and praise to our Lord, and now we seek to go deeper and wider into His Love. The Cross over The Crib will be that deepening of our contemplation of His Incarnation and our Blessed Mother’s yes, and the widening of our hearts as we receive His Grace to be filled to overflowing with His Spirit and His Gifts at His Coming.

The night will be filled with contemplative prayer in between contemporary praise songs and contemporary Christmas carols: O Come O Come Emmanuel, Hail Mary Gentle Woman, The Perfect Yes, Silent Night, The Word Became Flesh, O Holy Night, Angels We Have Heard on High, Come All Ye Faithful, He Shall Reign Forevermore, and What A Beautiful Name. So over the next few weeks prepare your hearts with these songs so that when we gather we can pray them with all of our hearts.

We are grateful to God for your faithfulness and the fruit of your love in Christ Jesus, and we greatly anticipate Glorifying God with you at Church of the Epiphany on December 7, from 7-9 p.m.!
