Lord, you make all kinds of people, even people like me.  In your love you gather them all into your Church.

As you gather your people this day, help me to serve them in a Christ like manner, even as you Son served those who gathered about him.

Make me prayerful and patient, helpful and understanding, and may I radiate the joy that faith brings as I serve their needs. 

Give me you strength to support my fellow ministers.

May all who assemble to celebrate our common faith in the risen Savior be glad of heart for being here and for having encountered your Son

in one another, in our priest, at the tables of the Book and the Bread, and through the ministry of ushers like me.  

I ask this in Jesus' name.




We are in need of ushers to take care of our weekly Masses, especially for the 8:30 am Mass. It just takes a few minutes of your time but means so much. If you are interested in this ministry or would like more information, please call the rectory.


Per Father's announcement last weekend (June 10 & 11), there will be a cross on the gifts table starting this weekend (June 17 &18)

Any parishioner who wants to take up the gifts should take the cross from the table and be seated for mass with it. 

If the cross is still on the gifts table, we, the ushers should ask someone to take up the gifts prior to the start of mass. 

When it's time to take up the gifts, the parishioner who is taking up the gifts should return the cross to the table and take up the gifts to Father at the Altar.

Any questions, please ask, Denise Quinn (216) 941-9541
