Bishop's letter

Prayer for Vocations

O God, Father of all Mercies,
Provider of a bountiful Harvest,
send Your Graces upon those
You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor;
preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.

Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will;
inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves
to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.

Teach all Your faithful to follow their respective paths in life
guided by Your Divine Word and Truth.
Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers
and grant Your Church's needs, through Christ, our Lord.




Universal – In Service of Peace
That the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict.

About the Catholic Faith Appeal

Hurricane Season Prayer
God, our Father, all the elements of nature obey Your command. 
Keep us safe from the danger of hurricanes, earthquakes,
floods, and other natural disasters.
May we be secure in Your protection and always feel the presence of Your love as You turn
our fears into praise of Your goodness.
Bless our families and bring peace to all nations. 
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You forever and ever. Amen.

Lord, please be with the rescue workers and keep them safe as they make heroic efforts 
in dangerous situations to rescue those in trouble.
Lord, please be with everyone waiting to be rescued, keep them safe,
and bring help to them soon.
God, bless each and every person affected by this storm and surround them
with Your love, protection, and angels.
Let them know there are millions of us out here praying for them and their loved ones.
We give You all the praise and glory forever, Lord, and know that even 
in the darkest hours, You are always with us.
