Between Sunday, November 15 and Saturday, November 21, 30 parish volunteers will be prayerfully reaching out to the 250 registered parishioners who did not respond to our recent parish census. This week we are asking that you pray in a special way for the success of this effort. Our motive is that all will know the Love of Christ and be active in our parish.
For Holy Trinity Parish – under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, may we continue to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ to become a stronger Catholic Community.
For the volunteers who will be reaching out this week to our sisters and brothers in the Lord – may they be blessed in a special way with the eyes, hands, feet, and ears of Christ.
For all those who have died and have no one to pray for them – eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let your perpetual light shine upon them.
For those who have moved away from our parish in recent years – may the Lord be their refuge in the storm, rest in weariness, protection in trouble, and a strong staff in danger. For all our days together, we give thanks.
For our sick brothers and sisters – may all who suffer pain, illness, or disease realize that they have been chosen to be saints and know that they are joined to Christ in his suffering for the salvation of the world.
For all those who are struggling in their Faith due to discouragement, disillusionment, boredom or woundedness – obtain for them the grace, O Lord, for healing and inspiration to accept the Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives, and the courage to bear witness to it.
In thanksgiving for all the blessings received this week through our outreach efforts – Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever will be. Amen.
