How can we pray for you?
As a community, we need to keep each other's deepest needs and yearnings of our hearts in prayer. With this in mind, we'd like to invite our Parish members to make known those friends and loved ones for whom we should pray. You can submit your prayer request using the Google Form here.
"There is no cross to bear that Christ has not already born for us, and does not now bear with us."
-Pope Saint John Paul II
This month, let us focus on each day as it comes by. Let us thank the Lord for His graces, especially when things don't happen the way we want them to, or when we want them to. Instead of losing hope and giving up, let us accept what is, and trust in the slow work of God, for His timing is always perfect. Allow God to open our hearts to have more room for love. How is God slowly working in your life?
