Prayer Intentions for April 2024

For our Holy Father, Francis, our Bishop John, and for all the Priests, Deacons and Sisters who serve our Diocese.


For peace in Central Europe and the Middle East; for the safety and protection of all innocent people everywhere.

For all migrants, immigrants and refugees who seek justice and protection in our communities.

For our absent and retired members that they may feel our welcome and presence in their daily lives.

For all the friars of Our Lady of Guadalupe Province as they continue to bring the Spirit of Saint Francis into our world.

For our Franciscan Sisters everywhere as they continue the work of sharing the Gospel. 

For a successful Region retreat that we might know the presence of our Shepherd, Jesus Christ and the love of our Father through the Holy Spirit.

As we prepare for the National Fraternity Chapter in September and for all who are helping prepare for our World Chapter in 2026...

We are collecting donations to help provide legal services for the family from Venezuela. Your donations have made it possible to secure a firm to represent them, but we need to keep fund-raising to help pay the full cost. We are also collecting for food, clothing and personal needs for the family. Look for a list at our Gathering. Please donate if you can.
