Pray for...
"A widow in that town used to come to him and say, 'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.' For a long time the judge was un-willing, but eventually he thought, 'because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me” 
- Luke 18:3-4b, 5

Weekly Meditation
Daily Prayer to End Abortion
 Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life and for the lives of all my
brothers and sisters. I know there is nothing that destroys more life than
abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the resurrection of
Your Son. I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
 Today, I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice, not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Join in a Prayer & Listening Event For the Archdiocesan Synod
What is it and how am I involved?
A Synod is a formal representative assembly de-signed to help a bishop in his shepherding of the local Church. This is a two year process. Year 1 begins now (2019) runs through 2020—this is the pray, listen and discuss period of the Synod. Why should I go? You know what’s working and what needs work in our parish and the Archdio-cese. This is your opportunity to help shape the future of our local church. In the fall of 2020 we will begin Year 2 which will end in November of 2021 on the Feast of Christ the King.
