A Prayerful Response
OUR RESPONSE BEGINS WITH PRAYER
Too much bloodshed. Too much violence. The headlines can become overwhelming, even for people with deep faith.
In response to recent violent events in our country, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops made this statement:
“Our Catholic faith calls us to pray for those who have died and to bind the wounds of others... as we do so, each of us also needs to search our souls for ways that we can do more to understand this epidemic of evil and violence and implore our elected officials to help us take action.”
We invite our members to visit our chapel, light a candle, and say a prayer anytime our building is open.
For now, we pray. With God's guidance, we will act.

Prayer for An End to War
Forgive us for war, O Lord.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us sinners!
Lord Jesus, born in the shadows of bombs falling on Kyiv, have mercy on us!
Lord Jesus, who died in a mother’s arms in a bunker in Kharkiv, have mercy on us!
Lord Jesus, a 20-year-old sent to the frontlines, have mercy on us!
Lord Jesus, who still behold armed hands in the shadow of your Cross, have mercy on us!
~ Excerpted from Pope Francis' Prayer for Ukraine
