A Prayer to Combat the Coronavirus Pandemic
Most Merciful and Triune God,
We come to You in our weakness.
We come to You in our fear.
We come to You with trust.

For You alone are our hope.
We place before You the disease present in our world.
We turn to You in our time of need.

Bring wisdom to doctors.
Give understanding to scientists.
Endow caregivers with compassion and generosity.
Bring healing to those who are ill.
Protect those who are most at risk.
Give comfort to those who have lost a loved one.
Welcome those who have died into Your Eternal Home.

Stabilize our communities.
Unite us in our compassion.
Remove all fear from our hearts.
Fill us with confidence in Your care.

Jesus, I trust in You.
Jesus, I trust in You.
Jesus, I trust in You.

Amen.

St. Andrew Dinner

The Vocations Office is excited to launch a new initiative in promoting opportunities for young men to learn more about the priesthood.  The events are known as St. Andrew Dinners and they give young men of high school and college age, along with their parents, a chance to gather with Bishop McGovern, Vocation Director Father Nick Junker, and some of the parish priests for a low-key evening of supper and conversation about priesthood.  

"I think it is important for us to offer opportunities for young men (along with their parents) to hear more about what it's like to be a priest, what goes into the decision to pursue the seminary or religious life, and what are the skills you need to develop in order to hear God's voice," said Bishop McGovern.  "Both young men and their parents have many good questions that they would like answered as they consider the future."

If you are interested in attending one of the St. Andrew Dinners, or have any questions, please contact Father Junker at [email protected] or call him at 618.722.5035. 

Parish Celebration!

Our parish community and surrounding parishes joined in celebrating the gifts of Fr. Sebastian and Angela Atkinson as well as welcoming Fr. Evaristus to the parish. This celebration was an opportunity to see the bountiful blessing of this community. The gifts of time, talent and treasure were shared by all. Thank you again for everyone involved in making this day a success!
