For our parish family, that during this season of Lent all may come to a closer relationship with God through acts of prayer, fasting, and charity, let us pray to the Lord.
For all of those who perpetrate acts of war and violence, that the peace of Christ may fill their hearts and lead them to true repentance and the salvation of their souls, let us pray to the Lord.
