Christian Prayer: Improve Your Life

Whatever stage we find our relationship with Christ, there is always room for improvement. Being in a Small Christian Community encourages us to grow with the support of others. The Why Catholic? Process invites us to rethink our priorities so that we can place a greater emphasis on improving our relationship with God and others and improving our lives.

Watch for more announcements about Why Catholic? and when asked to join, say "Yes!"

Virtus Monthly Training Bulletins

Summer time is a great time to catch up with your Virtus monthly bulletins:

Where the Virtus live training is an awareness and prevention program on Child Sex Abuse, the monthly bulletins allow the education of child protection to continue in a timely and topical manner, it is a valuable and necessary tool.

Education is the best resource in changing the culture with regard to this crime. Everyone with a Virtus account is expected to read the bulletins. This way, the Catholic Church continues to be a leader in protecting those most vulnerable.

Prayer For Protection From Storms

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming seasons.

Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain. You alone bring peace, calm, and safety. Father, we thank you in advance for you are our only refuge. We ask this through Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.

Amen.
