Pray for Our Military

Prince of Peace, we humbly ask your protection for all our men and women in military service.  Give them unflinching courage to defend with honor, dignity and devotion the rights of all who are imperiled by injustice and evil.  Guard our churches, our homes, our schools, our hospitals, our factories, our buildings, and all those within from harm and peril.  Protect our land and its people from enemies within and without.  Grant an early peace with victory founded upon justice.  Instill in the hearts and minds of people everywhere a firm purpose to live forever in peace and good will towards all.  Amen.

We invite you to attend the Tuesday evening Mass and join in prayer for world peace, the military and their families.
