Loving God, we grieve the lives of our sisters and brothers who died in the tragedy in Orlando. We ask you to welcome them home, and to surround them with your love.
Be with all who mourn their loved ones and friends, and with all of us who have been touched by this event. Thank you for those who are ministering this community through prayer, loving action, hospitality and presence.
Teach us, Lord, to be a people of peace and compassion, to minister to those who are suffering, including those who act out in violence. Forgive us and help us to forgive others.
Help us to bring peace and tolerance to our communities, our nation and our world. Help us, too, to erase violence and intolerance from our lives - no matter how seemingly small and insignificant.
We ask this in your Holy name, You who knew violence and answered it with love.

The “We Are Living Stones Campaign” will allow each of us to join our gifts with those who made the parishes and programs of this Archdiocese a reality in years past and will ensure that we remain a strong, vibrant and faithful Church in the years to come. We know that our greatest strength is our Catholic faith and the faith of our people. This campaign is centered primarily on the spiritual growth and development of our people’s faith. We are relying on your generosity to create a legacy for this generation -- a legacy of faith that will pass on to those who will cherish and take it into a new time, gratefully adding their own gifts to what you have so generously given.
On Monday, January 25, at 12:30pm & 7:30pm we hosted a one hour informational reception regarding the "We Are Living Stones" Campaign. We welcomed once again Archbishop Hebda who shared with us how we, during this Year of Mercy, can be living stones for future generations.

Strengthening Our Parishes: February 6-7, 2016
The Church is celebrating an extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy from Dec. 8, 2015, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, to Nov. 20, 2016, the feast of Christ the King. Pope Francis, who announced the year in March 2015, has said that it is his wish that "the Jubilee be a living experience of the closeness of the Father, whose tenderness is almost tangible, so that the faith of every believer may be strengthened and thus testimony to it be ever more effective."
