"We are all carrying a heavy load, fighting a hard battle, but so is every person we encounter in this mystery we call life.  Jesus invites us to "take up [our] cross daily" (Matthew 16:24).  And some days we are called to take up someone else's cross also, so he can catch his breath, have a short rest, or simply have his faith in the goodness of humanity restored."  Matthew Kelly, Resisting Happiness, p 25.

We all know the power of prayer, and we call upon yours to bring comfort, healing, joy, peace for the following prayer requests:


  • For those preparing to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, First Communion, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders and Anointing of the Sick

  • Alandra Coutts

  • (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis’ prayer intention for September:
  • "Let us pray for our parishes, that they not be simple offices, but that animated by a missionary spirit, may be places where faith is communicated and charity is seen."






Our Father...   Hail Mary...   Glory Be...
