Prayer for our Parish

Dear Heavenly Father,
Together we are united with the saints of the household of God; built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Jesus Christ himself being the cornerstone.
In Christ alone our church is being joined together, and is growing into a holy temple of the Lord by the Spirit.
Through Your wisdom may we discern where You want us to be;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord and the power of the Holy Spirit,

Birthday Card Collection

We are grateful for all the Father's Day cards which have been donated to the County Youth Detention Center. We have received an abundance of Father’s Day cards and are now requesting unsigned birthday cards. These will be for the youth to be able to send to their family throughout the year.

Please drop your cards off in the front hallway of Haut Gap in the collection bin on Sundays or at Resurrection Hall during the week. Please remember to continue your prayers for the youth. Thank you!
