Pray with Pope Francis
"Dear Lord Jesus, during this season of Lent, we pray that our brothers and sisters in prison would be able to rebuild lives of dignity. May you also bless any spouses who are separated. May they find support and truly be welcomed within the Christian community."
In 2013, Pope Francis declared that a Year of Consecrated Life (YCL) be celebrated throughout the world. YCL will begin on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014. It will close on the World Day of Consecrated Life, February 2, 2016.
Pray for all the men and women of the world who are consecrated to the Lord and the Church by their religious vows. Pray for vocations always.
During the cold and flu season ...
... all parishioners are reminded to use common sense. Those who are ill are not obligated to attend Mass and should stay home to recover. If you are at Mass and feeling ill, please refrain from taking Communion from the chalice. We also ask that those who are not well refrain from offering your hand to others at the sign of peace. We pray for the health and recovery of all who are ill and who could not be at Mass. For more information, visit the website of the U.S. Catholic Bishops: Influenza and the Liturgy.
