Heavenly Father,

On the National Day of Prayer may we pray for peace in Ukraine. This World Day of Prayer for Vocations we ask You increase laborers for the harvest. We implore your graces on families’ spiritual and physical health this UN International Day of Families. We pray for our Mothers especially on this Mother’s Day. This Armed Forces Day we ask Your Blessings on those who serve and their families. As we honor our war dead this Memorial Day we request You grant them entry into Your Kingdom. We recall Our Lady’s Visitation and Our Lady of Fatima as a reminder of the continuing role she plays in Your Plan for our salvation. We ask these in honor of the Ascension of the Lord,

With no Masses comes no collections, however, there are still bills that must be paid.

    309 Front St., Owego, NY 13827
  2. Drop your envelope in the mailbox on
