Let us pray for the soul of our dear friend, Fr. Bob Udulutsch, OFM, CAP, who returned to the Lord on Monday, July 23. Fr. Bob was a frequent visitor to our parish when Fr. Boyet and previous parish priests were on travel. We thank God for sending him to us and ask that his dear soul rests in peace with the perpetual light shining upon him always!

Respect Life Prayer: Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity of human life was the crowning of your creation. You further ennobled that life when your Son became one with us in His incarnation. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect it from the moment of conception until the last moment at death. Give us courage to speak with truth and love and with conviction in defense of life. Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness to those who do not reverence your gift of life. To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed to be grateful for your precious gift of life or to respect it in others. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
