Catholic Sacraments

What are Sacraments?

God longs to be a part of our lives. Sacraments are special celebrations of grace or sacred ways of God‘s life uniting with our lives. When we choose to celebrate the sacraments we open ourselves to God’s life-giving and protective love.

Faith Formation - May 2017

To Our Blessed Mother

    

We fly to your protection, most holy Mother of God; please listen to our petitions and needs, and deliver us from all dangers, ever glorious and blessed Virgin Mary.

Mary, our model and mother, by your obedience and patience you have taught us how to be true children of God. Please help us by your powerful assistance to overcome all our weaknesses, and to fulfill perfectly our tasks in life.

By your compassionate aid may we ever stand in spirit with you beneath the cross of Christ so that we may also rejoice with you in your divine Son's triumphant victory over sin and death.

In your maternal kindness help us to be faithful to prayers in the company of God's Church as you were one with the Apostles in the upper room as you waited for the promised Spirit of Pentecost.

 

With your gracious assistance may we be near you in the glory of Christ's kingdom come to sing with you and all the faithful the eternal praise of God. Amen. (www.catholic.org)

Thank you to everyone for all the money you gave to help support our fundraiser for Fr. Abraham’s orphanage. We gave Fr. Abraham over $3066 to help support the lives of orphans in India. How wonderful!! God blessed them well.

 

During this month of May, we are focusing our prayers on the rosary in honour of our Mother Mary. Please take time as a family to say a decade of the rosary together. Praying to our heavenly mother as a family is very powerful.
