In The News
The volume of TV Mass prayer intention requests
continues to remain high and the television Mass prayer and intention
schedule fills up quickly; especially Sundays and Holidays. So please
remember that it may be three months or more before you see your prayer request on the TV Mass, unless
you have requested a specific (special) date AND
it is available! Under normal circumstances,
special date requests must be submitted at least TWO
months in advance. Please note, for your security
and to prevent fraud, we deposit donations on the same
day that they are received. Please continue to use our
mail-in or online resources to request your prayer
intentions, and remember to
indicate whether the person you are requesting a prayer
for is LIVING or DECEASED in all correspondence. You can find
complete information on our Prayers
and Donations page.
We thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

February 11, 2021: Pope Francis' Message for the
24th World Day of the Sick
January 1, 2021: Pope Francis' Message for the
54th World Day of Peace
March 11, 2020 - Pope Francis offers the following prayer to the Virgin Mary for her protection during the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesusâ€™ pain, with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Fatherâ€™s will and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas â€“ we who are put to the test â€“ and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
