Presentation of Gifts at the Weekend & Holyday Masses - If you and your family would like to bring up the gifts (bread and wine) during the offertory at Mass, please see one of the ushers before the Mass. This is a wonderful opportunity for families with children to involve them and teach them the meaning of this sacrifice.

Prayer for a Loved One’s Return to Faith - Dear Lord, You became a man, suffered and died to win salvation for all souls. Look graciously on the soul of my loved one who has drifted away from you and The faith. Grant (name) in your grace to see the error of (his/her) way and return to the fold in your care. Teach me to stay close to (name) during this trying time and strive to convert (him/her) by action and prayers more than by ways that may antagonize. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust you to do everything to bring my loved one back to you. Amen.
