LITURGICAL LIVING CALENDAR:
Liturgical living is a beautiful way for individuals and families to learn about the traditions, saints, and rituals of our faith. This leads to a deeper comprehension and connection to our faith. Pick a few things each month to try and start to see the connection of the Catholic Faith to life outside of mass on Sunday! Give it a try!

A Prayer for Healing Divisiveness in our Community:
God in deepening relationships,
God in continuing conversation:
may we welcome each other with courage, knowing that being together changes who we are.
We pray that through respectful relationships we transform the imbalances of power to allow each one of us to fully belong.
And may it be that inholding silence and in listening well to each other, we hear your voice in the midst of us.
