We need 53 lights. If you would like to donate a fixture and at the same time honor someone who has brought light into your life, simply fill out this form and enclose your gift. It is an easy way of saying thank you!

Enclosed is my gift to St. Kateri church honoring _____________________for being a light to me.

BLESSING OF MISSIONARIES

So often we think of missionaries as those people from Protestant churches that go to other counties to spread the good news. However, do you realize that the United States is actually considered a 杜ission country because we need more priests and sisters in the United States than we produce? Yes, we are now a mission country.

Let us ask God痴 blessing on those men and women from other countries who are in our midst as priests, brothers, and sisters. And when we pray, let us also ask God to change our hearts so that we will again produce a society that brings forth more vocations.

Let us pray...

God of every nation,

you commissioned us at Pentecost

to go and make disciples of all nations.

When we take up your commission,

we become missionaries of your Gospel.

Bless all missionaries in our communities

with your love that surpasses all understanding.

Change our hearts so that we become

the missionaries you expect us to be.

We ask this through Jesus, the first missionary of your Gospel.

Amen.
