    unite our hearts to Christ's when we cannot receive him physically in the Eucharist.

    Prayer for First Communicants

    Lord Jesus,

    Bless the children coming forward to

    receive Holy Communion

    for the first time.

    May this day be an initial step into a

    life- long love of the Eucharist.

    Give them a hunger for this sacred food

    so that they turn to You for comfort,

    guidance, and


    as they grow in full


    Thank you for their

    innocence and


    May they grow in

    Christian maturity


    by the power of the

    Holy Spirit, become Christ’s witnesses in

    the world,

    spreading and defending the faith.


    Prayer for Confirmation Candidates

    Holy Trinity,

    guide and protect the candidates

    as they prepare to celebrate the

    Sacrament of Confirmation.

    Help them to discern

    God’s will in their life and fill them

    with the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit



    right judgment,





    and awe,

    to empower them to serve God

    as a true disciple through

    Your grace and in Your love.

    Census Update

    There is much to be done to join our three parishes in the way of

    office procedures and programs. As we have mentioned, updating the

    information in our Parish Data System programs is one of those tasks,

    making sure that we have current addresses, phone numbers,

    household members, emails, etc. So, we need your help. When

    someone from your parish calls you, or if you receive a request in the

    mail, please offer the information that is needed. It sure will help us

    out when merging the data bases for all three parishes in January. A

    big THANKS to those we have already talked with. You have been so

    receptive and cooperative. If you haven’t been reached yet, we will be

    in touch soon, one way or another!
