It is Time to Call Our Flock Back by Name through Prayer

Loving God,

Thank you for walking with us during these difficult months.  We humbly ask you for continued healing and comfort for the sick, grieving, and lonely.  As we welcome more members of our parish family back to Church to celebrate the Eucharist in person and in community, we ask you to continue to keep us safe as we draw closer to your Son. Help us to each do our part to pray for and welcome members of our parish family to Holy Mass.  May this celebration be a source of strength, peace, grace, and joy for all who gather here at St. John the Apostle Parish. 

Amen.
