FATHER LEDOUX’S PRAYER INTENTIONS
WORSHIP: Let us implore from Mary, Queen of the Holy Rosary (Feast Day October 7th), the grace from God to be consoled and strengthened as His Church in Her sufferings.
FAITH FORMATION: In this month’s observance to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, The Holy Guardian Angels, Apostles Sts. Simon and Jude, St. Luke, St. Teresa of Avila and St. Therese’ of Lisieux, and St. Francis of Assisi, may we never forget, as members of the Body of Christ and heirs to the Kindgom of God, we stand on the shoulders of giants who are praying for us and leading us in our walk with Jesus Christ!
EVANGELIZATION: As we observe “World Mission Sunday” on October 18th, let us pray to be renewed in our Faith in Christ Jesus who has ‘first loved us’ and Who has called us to “follow Me” so that as a parish we may live every day with love and zeal as members of His Church.
SOCIAL JUSTICE: October is dedicated as “Respect for Life Month” (Respect for Life Sunday is October 4th.) Let us pray for an end of Abortion, Captial Punishment, and all forms of disrespect of life in our nation and world.
BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES: In this final month of Capital Campaign packet distribution, we pray for generous hearts of prayer and treasure that we may be able to reach our goal of two million dollars.
