Our Patron Saints - Powerful Helpers
St. John Vianney and the Little Flower have been our heavenly helpers for many years
Saint Therese our little sister, bring us holy vocations -
women on fire with love for God
and a burning desire to see everyone love Him!
St. John Vianney, intercede with us for holy priests.
Blessed Mother Teresa
Blessed Mother Teresa,
pray that we may help the poorest of the poor,
those who do not yet know and love Jesus;
that the spiritually starving masses
will be fed with the Bread of Life.
The great John Paul II
Blessed Pope John Paul II,
pray with us for the Second Lifting,
when Jesus will be lifted high in the monstrance
and adored by all people!
