Chaplet of the Five Wounds Prayer Walk in Beaumont

Part of a series of prayer walks hosted by ArchEdmonton

This is the third of a series of prayer walks hosted by the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton in 2018.

The Chaplet of the Five Wounds prayer walk will take place at St. Vital Church in Beaumont, Alberta, on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 6:30pm, on the Feast of the Canadian Martyrs. This 1.9km prayer walk will take approximately 1 hour.

The Facebook event to invite others is located here. No RSVP is necessary, but it will give us an idea of how many will attend before we begin the walk.

Tip: Since we will be starting and ending at the same place, you may park at St. Vital Church. Dress for the weather. However, in the case of inclement weather, we will be praying the chaplet inside the church.

Beaumont, Alberta

Beaumont was originally a French village when it was founded in 1919. The town, which now qualifies to be a city, still has a strong French-Canadian heritage with many named legacies and bilingual schools. Beaumont is currently located 1km from the south Edmonton boundary, but will be direct neighbours with Edmonton after the completion of the provincial annexation changes.

St. Vital was Bishop Grandin’s patron saint, and the parish community dating back to the 1880s is named after this saint. The history of the parish many be found here.

The Chaplet of the Five Wounds of Jesus

The Chaplet of the Five Wounds of Jesus consists of a medal with 3 introductory beads, and five groups of of five beads, separated by a large bead (or medals depicting each wound). Praying this helps one to meditate on the five wounds of Jesus during Christ’s passion.

3 Opening beads:
1. Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
2. Glory be to the Father, And to the Son, And to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
3. Hail Mary, full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
