Monthly Intentions for December

We Pray . . .

That during this time of preparation
for the coming of our Savior,
our hearts may be transformed
into a manger
for the newborn Babe
to rest.

Let us continue to remember in prayer those who are ill and those who care for them:

Delores Nocchi, Earl and Pam Dahl, John and Jenny Bosshart, Joe Pesce, Bob Bukowski, Steve Stecker, Henry and Lillian Kazmierczak, Christine Green, Megan, daughter of Mary Beth Murray, Joe Gagliardi, Maria Snell, Nina Sherman, Sister Madge, Marie Mynatt

We remember in prayer those who have died:

Tom, brother-in-law of Jerry Stecker

And We Pray . . .

That once more, as we celebrate the birth of Christ,
All people may live in Peace with Joy.
That the humility and poverty embraced by the Holy Family
becomes a shining star for us to follow.
That we may become a people of gratitude,
striving for perfect charity.

In Thanksgiving

We offer prayers of thanks for the gift of  LOVE INCARNATE. We are grateful  for  life, Faith, our vocation, our family, friends, for one another. And, we give thanks for the many graces and blessings in our own life.

A very Blessed and Merry Christmas to our Franciscan Family!
May the Love, Peace, and Joy of this Holy Season
be yours throughout the New Year.
