PRAYER FOR FATHERS St. Joseph, guardian of Jesus and chaste husband of Mary, you passed your life in loving fulfillment of duty. You supported the holy family of Nazareth with the work of your hands. Kindly protect those who trustingly come to you. You know their aspirations, their hardships, their hopes. They look to you because they know you will understand and protect them. You too knew trial, labor and weariness. But amid the worries of material life, your soul was full of deep peace and sang out in true joy through intimacy with Godâ€™s Son entrusted to you and with Mary, his tender Mother. Assure those you protect that they do not labor alone. Teach them to find Jesus near them and to watch over him faithfully as you have done. Amen. Pope John XXIII FEAST OF THE TWO HEARTS

PETER’S PENCE COLLECTION NEXT WEEKEND During every Mass, the celebrant invites the assembly to “offer each other the sign of peace.” With that gesture, parishioners connect themselves to each other within the parish. The Peter’s Pence Collection gives us an opportunity to extend a sign of peace to the Body of Christ around the world. Our gifts to this annual Collection help the Holy Father support victims of poverty, disaster, war, and oppression and others in urgent need of assistance. Pope Benedict XVI uses the Peter’s Pence Collection to strengthen dioceses, religious orders, and struggling communities of faith when they need it most. Please be generous next weekend. Use your preprinted envelope or a pew envelope.
