Closing Year of Mercy

How greatly I desire that all those places where the Church is present may become islands of mercy in the midst of the sea of indifference. Pope Francis.


Without YOU we’re Youthless!


Loving God, who created us in your image,

grant our young people the power and courage

 to come out of the darkness and into the light

 of Jesus Christ.

Strengthen their faith, heal their brokenness,

open their eyes and dispel their  fears.

For you alone, God, are worthy of praise.

Calm their minds and open their hearts

as they continue with all to worship together

for your kingdom of love and mercy.
