A word from Pope Francis about our care for God's Creation - Laudate Deum – The title Laudate Deum powerfully reminds believers that God is the Creator, and God’s creation is ever ongoing. The theological mystery of continuous creation affirms that God’s loving providence sustains all life, at all times. I encourage all to focus on Pope Francis’ call to faith. Herein is a flame of hope, a light against the darkness that he calls us all to protect as we care for our common home.  


Diocesan Prayer for Lent

Loving God in this season of Lent

You call us to act justly, love tenderly

and walk humbly with each other

so that we can build

your kingdom of justice and peace

Your kingdom of love and truth

Your kingdom of holiness and grace

in our world today. Amen.
