Director's Message
Dear Friends of Our Lady of Prompt Succor,

Once again this year, the month of July begins with the celebration of the birth of our country. We give thanks to our God for the gift of freedom and for the sacrifices of all those who have striven to make this possible.

In a time of such division in our country, each of us is invited to ponder: What are the true values which make America “great”? And how are we each called to be peacemakers at such a time as ours?

Let us ask Our Lady’s help that as we rejoice and give thanks for our liberty and our country, we may be faithful to our call to help form a just and compassionate society which respects diversity and differences of opinion.

Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us!

Sr. Carolyn M. Brockland, OSU
