Veteran’s Day

veterans-dayLord God, Almighty Father,
creator of mankind and author of peace,
as we are ever mindful of the cost paid for the liberty we possess,
we ask you to bless the members of our armed forces who have fought and protected our country.
May they ever experience your firm support, gentle love and compassionate healing.
Be their power and protector, leading them from darkness to light.
To you be all glory, honor and praise, now and forever.

giving treeOur planning has begun for this years Giving Tree. Our tree will be up the weekend of November 12-13 full of gift tags for nursing home residents, Veterans at Soldier On and St. Mark’s parish families.

Tags for those who would like to deliver gifts and visit the recipients will also be on the tree. We hope everyone will participate this year as in the past in making Christmas special for many deserving people.

Our Guardian Angel Guild will also help with any parishioner(s) needing help with Christmas this year. Applications are in the church entrances. Please complete the confidential form and return to the parish office ASAP so tags can be put on the Giving Tree.
