Baptismal Instruction – The next class will be held on Monday, June 4th at 7PM in the church hall. If you are expecting or recently had a baby, please call the rectory office to register for this class.
Holy Spirit, Spirit of truth you are the reward of the saints, the comforter of soul, light in the darkness, riches to the poor, food for the hungry hospitality to wanderers. You are the one in whom all treasures are contained. Let us, on Pentecost, remember to share these rich treasures you have bestowed on us. May we be your gift-bringers to all those we meet.
Prayer to My Guardian Angel
Angel of God’s light, whom God sends as a companion for me on earth, protect me from the snares of the devil, and help me to walk always as a child of God, my Creator.
Angel of God’s truth, whose perfect knowledge serves what is true, protect me from deceits and temptations. Help me to know the truth, and always to live the truth.
Angel of God’s love, who praises Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, who sacrificed His life for love of us, sustain me as I learn the ways of Divine love, of sacrificial generosity, of meekness and lowliness of heart.
Thank You, my heavenly friend, for your watchfull care. At the moment of my death, bring me to heaven, where the one true God, Who is light, Truth and Love, lives and reigns forever and ever.
