We need 99 additional families to reach our goal of 400 families photographed for our directory! The photos in our current directory are five years old - we adults haven't changed, but our children certainly have!) A new directory will celebrate our church family and help us connect names with faces. All sessions will take place at church. Every family photographed will receive a free 8x10 portrait and a directory, and photo packages will be available for purchase. Bring in a nonperishable food item for the food pantry and receive $5 off. First responders and military receive a 20% discount.
Our final portrait sessions are
Thursday - Saturday, August 16-18

A Prayer for Our Country
We know, Lord, that you yourself are a migrant. You experienced the trials of the refugee, having fled as a child with your parents, Joseph and Mary, to Egypt. We know your special love for those with no other possession but one another, and you.
Move our hearts, Lord, and the hearts of our leaders to love them as you do, to love them with your love, to be your love for migrants at the doorway of our country.
Excerpted from Sorrow and Mourning Flee Away: Pastoral Letter on Migration by Bishop Mark J. Seitz, Diocese of El Paso
