Pope John Paul II
O God, Creator of the universe, who extends your paternal concern over every creature 
and guides the events of history to the goal of salvation, 
we acknowledge your fatherly love when you break the resistance of mankind 
and, in a world torn by strife and discord, you make us ready for reconciliation. 
Renew for us the wonders of your mercy; send forth your Spirit that he may work in the intimacy 
of hearts,
 that enemies may begin to dialogue, that adversaries may shake hands 
 and peoples may encounter one another in harmony. May all commit themselves 
 to the sincere search 
 for true peace which will extinguish all arguments, for charity which overcomes hatred, 
 for pardon which disarms revenge.

Prayer for Vocations
God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women to serve in your Son’s
Kingdom as priests, deacons, religious and consecrated persons. Send your Holy Spirit
to help us respond generously and courageously to your call. May our community of faith 
support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth. We ask this through our Lord Jesus 
Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.



National Leaders.
That national leaders may firmly commit themselves to ending the arms trade, which victimizes so many innocent people.

Lapsed Christians.
That our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the merciful closeness of the Lord and the beauty of the Christian life.

Welcome! We would like to welcome you to our parish family. In order to better serve you, please fill out a registration card located at the entrances of the church and leave it with an usher or deposit it in the collection plate. You may also register by stopping by the church office.

Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty
O God our Creator,
from Your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 
You have called us as Your people and given us the right and the duty to worship You, the only true God, 
and Your Son Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of Your Holy Spirit, You call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
 bringing the light and saving the truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.
We ask You to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and 
heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices 
heard on behalf of the rights of Your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all Your sons and daughters gathered in 
Your  Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every 
danger overcome -
For the sake of our children, grandchildren and all who come after us - this great land will always 
be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Bishop Frank J. Dewane, along with Bishops throughout the United States, are urging all Catholics to pray for victims of religious persecution, especially Christians in the Middle East:
For all Christians in the Middle East and elsewhere who are persecuted for the Faith; that they may be strengthened in their courageous witness, and for a lasting peace to come to their troubled lands. Let us pray to the Lord.
