Mary our Mother intercede for us

   

     Our Archbishop's Message

If we take God at His Word, He will certainly take us at ours. He will fill us and empower us with the incredible presence and power of the Holy Spirit, and from that moment on, our life will not be even remotely the same. We will share the Gospel and win people to the Lord with a confidence and power we never thought possible. We will know abundance in every aspect of daily life. But most of all, we will experience the invasion of the supernatural into the depths of our soul.

Engagements-May 

      Prayer for the Year of the Family

 

Father, Son and Holy Spirit we thank you for the gift of our families and your call to them to be sanctuaries of life and schools of love. Make us aware of the sacredness of the family and its beauty in your plan. Model our families after the Holy Family of Nazareth. Give them the spirit of prayer and thanksgiving, peace and joy, unity and love. Guide them in times of trials and difficulties. Make them messengers of peace and heralds of the Gospel. May we understand that family life is made beautiful and happy by caring and sharing, giving and forgiving. Give also our families the grace to be attentive to the needs of the poor.

Mary our Mother intercede for our families.
