Happy Father's Day May the Love and Grace of our Heavenly Father pour upon all fathers.


Year of Hope          "Lord, hear our prayer; Lord, we await." - this is the short chant our Choir sings for Prayer of the Faithful every Sunday, it is also our short prayer to God.  To 'wait' symbolizes our reliance and trust in God.  Our hope today is to let us realize what we need in life - not in a materialistic way, but spiritually.  We await and hope in God as we sing from the bottom of our hearts. (St. Mary's Choir)
