A Stewardship Prayer for September

Lord Jesus Christ,
As we begin to shift from summer schedules to autumn demands,
teach us to recognize you amidst our busy life.
Open the Scriptures to us that we may know you, see you, hear you -
in the voices of friends and family, in the ministries of our parish,
in the proclamation of the Word, and in the Breaking of the Bread.
Teach us to be good stewards, that we may use your gifts wisely
and care for all those you place in our path.
Encourage us, when we are overwhelmed.
Strengthen us, when we are frightened.
Challenge our complacency.
Help us make this new season a time of spiritual renewal, hope, and
action to proclaim the Gospel in our words and in our deeds.
For the kingdom and the power and the glory are yours,
now and forever. Amen.

Memorials & Personal Intentions - Votive Candles

Votive CandlesVotive Candles are available for memorials and personal intentions throughout the Church. Prices and locations are as follows:

Candles on St. Joseph’s Altar are perpetual candles and burn for one year for memorial and personal intentions. The cost of these candles is now $260.00. The increase is due to the fact that the $115.00 did not cover the actual cost of these candles for the year.

The votive candles on the Blessed Mother’s Altar are $5.00 for the seven-day candles.

The votive candles in the Baptistery are for St. Jude and St. Anthony and are $2.00. They burn for one day.

Votive Candle Donations

We are asking parishioners to please remember to place your donations in the donation slot when lighting votive candles for your prayer intentions. Unfortunately, due to the lack of payments, candle expenses are not being covered. By doing this, we can help defray the cost of candles in the parish. Everyone’s cooperation is greatly appreciated.
