 These talented and giving people have led us in prayer at the 9:30am Mass all year long, including special events in the parish as well. We thank them and want them to know we appreciate the gift of themselves that they have shared with all of us. We invite you over the summer months to give serious consideration to joining the choir next year when we resume “singing joyfully in praise of God” at the 9:30am Liturgy next fall. Watch the bulletin for further information.

Prayer Promise Initiative

Next weekend we celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Refuge with a

Prayer Promise Initiative

Our parish is kicking off a Prayer Initiative on Our Lady’s Feast Day (July 5, 2014) to facilitate greater stewardship of prayer. We are asking each family over the next year to commit to saying one Hail Mary prayer each day. It can be as simple as saying it after grace before a meal. We will display a banner in our narthex to support our efforts in this initiative. Prayer is at the heart of stewardship. In spending time in prayer, we realize that everything is a gift from God.

Are you looking for a way to boost your prayer life? Are you seeking to connect more meaningfully with God? I invite you to consider taking a step forward in our prayer life. Prayer is about our relationship with God. It is through our individual prayer lives that we engage in conversation with God concerning our gratitude for his many blessings as well as ask for His bestowal of grace in our lives. In nurturing this relationship, we are able to stay connected and understand God’s will for our lives.
