Prayer for Families

God, our Father, we thank you for the gift of family. We acknowledge that our image and name as family comes from you.  We believe that within our family life we are able to grow in holiness. We ask that you help us be a household of faith where we experience your presence, your forgiveness, and your love.

We are Family. We give thanks to you for the many joys and blessings that have come to us through family.  As a family we sometimes feel pain. And so we offer you our disappointments, frustrations, and hurts. Help us to forgive those members of our family, including ourselves, who have caused pain. 

We pray for the strength to be a light within our family. May we open our hearts, our eyes, and our ears and carry your light to those in need.

God, our Father, creator of heaven and earth and all its people, help us to be mindful of the needs of families within our parish family, our parish family, our community, and our world. Help us as a family to share your love as we serve one another within our familes, our parish, our community and our world. 

We ask this through your beloved Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary, 

suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried;

he descended into hell;

on the third day he rose again from the dead;

he ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;

from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.


The Lord's Prayer

Our Father,

Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name;

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,


Hail Mary Prayer

Hail Mary,

Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou amoung women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death.


Prayer to St. Michael The Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,

O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God,

thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits,

who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
