Letter from the Diocese

The Knights of Columbus would like you to join them in reciting the Rosary and The Chaplet of Divine Mercy at St. Paul’s Church on the first Wednesday of every month from 6—7 pm. Let’s pray for healing for our friends, family and the world.

Congratulations to Rev. Benjamin Schrantz & Rev. Pawel Zmija on their Ordination to the Priesthood

Prayer for Priests Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the gift of our priests. Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments. Help our priests to be strong in their vocation. Set their souls on fire with love for your people. Grant them the wisdom, understanding, and strength they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom. Give them the words they need to spread the Gospel. Allow them to experience joy in their ministry. Help them to become instruments of your divine grace. We ask this through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest. Amen. - from US Conference of Catholic Bishops

“Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.” “He that is without sin among you, let him be first to stone her.” - St. Barnabas, Apostle

A Family Perspective by Bud Ozar June 23, 2024: 12th Sunday Just as the apostles in today’s gospel were amazed at the power of Jesus so our children are amazed at our lack of fear of dark rooms or monsters in closets or under beds. As the apostles depended on Jesus, children depend on us to restore quiet to their lives. Getting out of bed at night to quiet a child’s fears is the stuff of holiness.

Prayer for Inner Peace Jesus, Speak your command of “Quiet! Be still!” into the dark recesses of my mind — my fears, concerns, and anxieties. Be with me, at every moment, no matter the storm. Fix my eyes upon you. Amen. ©LPi
