FATHER LEDOUX’S PRAYER INTENTIONS
WORSHIP: As we begin this New Year we seek the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title "Holy Mother of God" for personal and global peace by accepting the Light of Christ.
FAITH FORMATION: In this month in which we celebrate the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, patron of Catholic Education, may this mid- point of the Catechetical year be an occasion of gratitude and re-commitment to the duty of handing on the Faith to the next generation.
EVANGELIZATION: In this month of commemorating the Baptism of the Lord may we recall and live more fully for ourselves and for others our own Baptism in Christ, the ‘Light of the nations’ and the ‘One in whom the Father is well pleased,’.
SOCIAL JUSTICE: As the 42nd Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade is commemorated this month, may our ceaseless prayers as a parish for the cause of life hasten the day of justice for the unborn.
BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES: May the Holy Spirit lead us to be generous stewards of the treasures we have been entrusted as we move forward in receiving the recommendation to begin a Capital Campaign.
