A prayer for you during the week

A new prayer at the beginning of each week

A Prayer for the People of the United States of America

Let us pray fervently for all our "cousins" in the United States of America. Let us call upon Jesus and implore him to hold their nation in his arms. Let us beseech him for the healing of division, that each person may recognize and acknowledge the worth of the other, and that together all will seek common ground for unity and peace. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.

People in the Buckhorn and Trent Lakes area often ask us to pray for them

You can too!

  • We'd be happy to pray for you
  • Just let us know and we'll add you to our prayers
  • Our parish priest will be in touch to verify
  • You can also simply ask any member of the parish

Noon Day Prayers on 'Zoom' every Wednesday

Every Wednesday, mid-week and mid-day at noon, a group gathers virtually on Zoom for a few moments of prayer - about 15 minutes

  • This time of prayer sets a few moments aside during the routine of the week
  • It is simple and contemplative with moments of silence
  • Anyone who wishes to join on Zoom is welcome
  • It is also available on our Facebook Page

Every Wednesday at 12 Noon

15 minutes of quiet, reflection, and prayer

Caring for our local community and beyond

Being the Church is about community

Sharing our blessings: All proceeds from parish events are directed to ministry and to community outreach projects for those in need locally and beyond

Blessings to you.
