News from Visitation Province

Almighty God, who are mother and father to us all,

Look upon your planet Earth divided:

Help us to know that we are all your children;

That all nations belong to one great family,

And all of our religions lead to you.

 

Multiply our prayers in every land

Until the whole Earth becomes your congregation,

United in your love.

Sustain our vision of a peaceful future

And give us strength to work unceasingly

To make that vision real. Amen.

News from Blessed Sacrament Province

This past Sunday was Catechetical Sunday and our first day of religious education at the Cathedral. As part of my welcoming and starting anew, I challenged grades 7-10, to celebrate The Year of Mercy doing works of mercy as the cathedral youth. I showed them our green t-shirt and showed them what their t-shirt would look like; Rooted in Jesus Christ, Cultivating Love and Compassion, with a picture of Pope Francis and the cathedral. Sign up is this coming Sunday. We hope to put out an event, gather whoever can participate that day with their t-shirts on. (Some teachers were already giving me ideas that we will pursue!) I will go this week to a Hartford T shirt place to price having them printed and look for t-shirts! We hope to do one event a month! This Sunday, we will put it together. We will let you know when you can don your shirts and join us!
