A Prayer of Welcome
We are blessed to have this beautiful Sanctuary in the city.
May pilgrims and visitors feel welcomed as they are surrounded by the majesty of the tall cedars.
May the bird's song, the rustling leaves, and the greeting of our staff allow all who visit to lay down their burdens here.
May they feel your loving mercy, and be inspired by the images of angels and saints to follow your Son Jesus more sincerely.
And may Blessed Mary offer her humble encouragement as visitors pray, explore, seek and learn.
As our visitors leave this place may they be filled with the gift of compassion and hope.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
