    • Join us in prayer for the intersession of St. Gianna
      I have not the courage to force myself to seek beautiful prayers in books; not knowing which to choose I act as children do who cannot read; I say quite simply to the good God what I want to tell Him, and He always understands me.
      ~ Saint Therese of Lisieux
      Please join us every Friday at 4:00 p.m. in the church to pray for the Saint Gianna shrine and all of it's related projects. God, being the perfect planner and having the perfect vision for this project, will help guide it to completion. Please prayerfully consider joining us to pray a rosary and novena for the powerful intercession of Saint Gianna. She has already blessed our parish and our lives in many ways! Come and pray that God's will be done as we honor this heroic wife, mother and doctor.
