Prayer Requests

Dear Friends,

December 3 marks the First Sunday of Advent, the beginning of the 2024 liturgical year.

For you, and and your parish, we've posted "Prayers of Intercession for Family Caregivers"  for all the Sundays and many major feast days for this year. You can find them here.

And yes, December third means only twenty-two more praying days until Christmas!

As always, you and your  loved ones remain in my prayers.
