Almighty and gracious God, today we are grateful for Your guidance and Your presence in our lives. We humbly follow Your lead and direction.
When our own decisions seem too difficult to navigate, help us to turn to the One who never slumbers or sleeps. When we are impatient for
decisions, help us to wait upon You for the right way to go.
Strengthen us for the work that You have called us to do. Help us to work together for the common good and reach across lines to be Your hands and feet in a world that desperately needs You.
When times and situations seem uncertain, help us cling to the hope that we find in You. And in the words of Micah 6:8, help us to act justly, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God.
We pray all of this in Your mighty name. Amen.
“We should never attempt to separate these three graces of the Gospel: its truth, which is non–negotiable; its mercy, which is unconditional and offered to all sinners; and its joy, which is personal and open to everyone. Truth, mercy and joy: these three go together.”

We welcome all who are interested, those who regularly pray the Rosary and those who wish to learn. We have prayer sheets and rosaries available.
