Fourth of July Prayer
Prayer offered by the chaplain, Rev. Edward G. Latch on July 3, 1974 in the U.S. House of Representatives
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord (Psalms 33:12).
Eternal God, stir thou our minds and stimulate our hearts with a high sense of patriotism as we approach the Fourth of July. May all that this day symbolizes renew our faith in freedom, our devotion to democracy, and redouble our efforts to keep a government of the people, by the people, and for the people truly alive in our world.
Grant that we may highly resolve on this great day to dedicate ourselves anew to the task of ushering in an era when good will shall live in the hearts of a free people, justice shall be the light to guide their feet, and peace shall be the goal of humankind: to the glory of thy holy name and the good of our nation and of all [people]. Amen.”
The Parish Office will be closed Friday, July 3rd in observance of the July 4th holiday.
Wishing you a happy, safe 4th of July.

No Assigned Seating
I want to thank everyone for their patience over the last couple of weeks as we opened the Church for public attendance. As the Governor has allowed us to begin Step 2 of Phase 2, there will no longer be assigned seating at Mass beginning the weekend of June 27/28. However, registration either online or by phone is required to attend a specific Mass. If you leave a message on the voicemail, please be sure to leave your contact information as you are not registered unless you receive a confirmation call from the office. We ask for your continued support as we all must maintain the requirement for social distancing at this time.

Prayer to Our Lady Of Guadalupe - Intercessor Of The Unborn
“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.
I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have
spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.”
“ABORTION IS PROFOUNDLY ANTI-WOMEN. THREE QUARTERS OF ITS VICTIMS ARE WOMEN: HALF THE BABIES AND ALL THE MOTHERS”

Prayer for the Protection of the Unborn
Give us the grace... When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, to stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.
~ John Paul II
Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error. The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness.
