That this Lent this Church will bear effective witness to the Gospel message of God's love to those who live in material, moral, and spiritual destitution.
For peace in the world, and for the protection of all those who risk their lives to defend that peace.
That families will recommit themselves to fervent prater this Lent so as to grow in greater love holiness.
For those preparing to enter the Church at Eater who will come forward today for the Rite of Election that they will be blessed in these days of preparation.
For the repose of the souls of all the faithful departed, especially from our own parish and families.
For the grace this week to face the temptations of life by relying on the love of the Lord.
