"Each of you should use whatever GIFT you have received,
to SERVE OTHERS as faithful servants of

GOD'S Grace,
in it's various forms."

1 Peter 4:10



Are you being called to this MINISTRY?
Do you have a desire
within your heart to serve
our LORD on HIS altar?


St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.

Be our DEFENSE against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May GOD rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host,

by the power of GOD cast into hellSatan

and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. 


Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope.

To you we cry, the children of Eve;
to you we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this land of exile.

Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
lead us home at last
and show us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus:

O clement, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary.
