Please pray for the intentions of:

  • Dick Colin
  • Bill Lauber
  • Bethany Gates
  • George McConaughey
Think, O God, of our friends who are ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard. We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will. We therefore pray that You bless our friends with Your loving care, renew their strength, and heal what ails them in Your loving name. Thank You, Lord.
Amen

Due to the possibility of inclement weather, Archbishop Rodi has granted a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass this Sunday for anyone for whom doing so would put them at risk.

Mass will be offered at 8:00 am, 10:30 am and 7:00 pm (there will be no 12:30 Mass this Sunday, October 8). Please use your best judgment regarding the safety of driving to and from Mass and attend only if it is safe to do so.

Prayers for protection from storms, to prevent storms and to avert storms.

  • Prayer for Protection against Storms and Hurricanes

Our Father in Heaven through the intercession of Our Lady of Prompt Succor, spare us during this Hurricane season from all harm. Protect us and our homes from all disasters of nature. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • Prayer to Avert Storms and Hurricanes

Father, all the elements of nature obey your command. Calm the storms and hurricanes that threaten us and turn our fear of your power into praise of your goodness. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

  • Prayer for Hurricane Season

O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude; you are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control. The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster. During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us. Amen.

Originally dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Audrey in 1957. – Fr. Al Volpe, Cameron Parish, LA

Join CReEd Parents tonight at 6:00 in the Parish Hall. Bring a bag (or several) of candy and help us assemble 2000 treat bags for Boo at the Zoo!

CALLING ALL COOKS! The Ladies Altar Rosary Society is compiling a cookbook and we are looking for your favorite family recipes. We will have a special section of “Snowbird Recipes”. Recipes are due by November 1 with publication by February 1. Please send your recipes to Laura Pfizenmayer at pfizplays or you can drop them by the office.

The Rosary is a powerful prayer of intercession to our Blessed Mother. We ask her to bring our prayers to her Divine Son and plead for His aid. We bring our Rosary intentions to Mary with the hope that our request will be answered. If you don’t pray the Rosary on a regular basis, perhaps these quotes will give you inspiration to make it a habit.
