Christian Prayer: Talk About God

Praying with others and reading the Bible together brings us closer to God and to each other. We form and deepen new relationships. Our parish is participating in Why Catholic? and many new small Christian communities will be formed for faith sharing recalling moments of grace when God touched our lives, challenged us or spoke to us.

This process brings us closer together and strengthens our community. Watch for more announcements about Why Catholic? and when asked, say "Yes!

Virtus Monthly Training Bulletins

Summer time is a great time to catch up with your Virtus monthly bulletins:

Where the Virtus live training is an awareness and prevention program on Child Sex Abuse, the monthly bulletins allow the education of child protection to continue in a timely and topical manner, it is a valuable and necessary tool. Education is the best resource in changing the culture with regard to this crime.

Everyone with a Virtus account is expected to read the bulletins. This way, the Catholic Church continues to be a leader in protecting those most vulnerable.

Prayer For Protection From Storms

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming seasons.

Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain. You alone bring peace, calm, and safety. Father, we thank you in advance for you are our only refuge. We ask this through Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
