“We do not pray in order to escape the world around us.  We pray with one eye on the world so that we can come to understand what is really being asked of us here and now, at times like this, as co-creators of the universe.”   Sr. Joan Chittister, OSB

Each Sunday, the Prayers of Petition are prayed during the celebration of the mass.  For reflection these prayers are duplicated in the Sunday bulletin.  For the convenience of those who were not able to join us for Mass or who were unable to obtain a bulletin, please use the archive of recent Prayers of Petition.
