Fr. Mark's School of Prayer
In Matthew 21:13, Jesus tells us that "My house shall be a house of prayer". You and I, by virtue of our baptism into Christ are now God's house, God's dwelling place, God's temple of the Holy Spirit. In Luke 11:1, one of Jesus's disciples said, "Lord, teach us how to pray just as John taught his disciples." God created us for Himself, that we might come to know Him and the profound love that He has for each of us. As disciples of Jesus, it is absolutely essential that we be deeply grounded in Him (in Love) through a life of prayer. For without Him we can do nothing (John 15:5)!
If you would like to grow in your relationship with Jesus through a life of prayer, please join Fr. Mark every first Saturday of the month at the Lakeview chapel following the 8:15 Mass. Please bring a journal and pen.

Prayer for Family Formation
Prayer for Family Formation in Every Part of Our Parish
Dear Lord, you have always been faithful to us and have always guided our parish to know, love and serve you. You call us to be Disciples who actively share their faith with others. Strengthen the gifts of the Holy Spirit in each of us as we seek to help our families become the primary place of religious formation. We give you thanks for the fruit that has come from Family Formation. Bless all our efforts this coming year especially as we move the Family Formation model into our school and as we begin YDisciple among our youth. Encourage us as we move in this new direction and keep our hearts tuned to your will. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
