PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
TO CONSECRATED LIFE
Dear Friends,
Faithful God,
Just a brief note to thank you all so much for your good
wishes, prayers and cards,.I am grateful. Thanks too to
our “in-a-pinch” group of our school, they have provided
some wonderful meals in recent days...we have great
cooks in our parish!
Surgery has been moved up and is now scheduled for
tomorrow, Monday, February 2nd and I will ask for your
prayers for a quick recovery and to fulfill my hopes of
presiding at the Easter Vigil.
Once again, thanks to all of you for your prayerful support. I am grateful.
With love and prayers for all of you, always!
Father Tom
HELP FOR FATHER TOM
You may have heard, Fr. Tom Hamilton is in need of
some assistance. We ask that you keep him in your prayers. The St. Gabriel School Parent Organization’s In A
Pinch has created a meal calendar with the website
“Lotsa Helping Hands” to organize dinners for Fr. Tom
over the next several weeks. It is a wonderful feeling to
share and we hope you will join us in this endeavor.
Please
email
Tina
O’Sullivan
at
[email protected] She will give you access to the community website “Help for Father Tom.” You will then go to
the web address provided, create a password, and gain
access to the calendar. Once you select a day to help,
you will be given meal and delivery instructions. If you
have any questions, please email or call Tina 415-7560404.
We celebrate your fidelity and love for your Church.
You bless us and call us into a covenant with you,
with Jesus, and with the Hoy Spirit.
Mary accepted this covenant,
offering herself as your blessed handmaid.
You entrusted her with your Son, Jesus,
and in turn she became our mother too.
Like Jesus and Mary, bless us with a trusting spirit
that we might serve you faithfully.
Inspire men and women to dedicate their lives to you
through the consecrated life.
Help us to invite, encourage and support
men and women to serve the Church.
Blessed are we as we seek to live our lives
in holiness and integrity.
We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus and his
Blessed Mother in union with the Holy Spirit.
Amen
