A CORONAVIRUS PRAYER
By Kerry Weber
Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.” At your command, the sick were made well. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.
Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care.
Heal us from our fear, which prevents nations from working together and neighbors from helping one another.
Heal us from our pride, which can make us claim invulnerability to a disease that knows no borders.
Jesus Christ, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and sorrow.
Be with those who have died from the virus. May they be at rest with you in your eternal peace.
Be with the families of those who are sick or have died. As they worry and grieve, defend them from illness and despair. May they know your peace.
Be with the doctors, nurses, researchers and all medical professionals who seek to heal and help those affected and who put themselves at risk in the process. May they know your protection and peace.
Be with the leaders of all nations. Give them the foresight to act with charity and true concern for the well-being of the people they are meant to serve. Give them the wisdom to invest in long-term solutions that will help prepare for or prevent future outbreaks. May they know your peace, as they work together to achieve it on earth.
Whether we are home or abroad, surrounded by many people suffering from this illness or only a few, Jesus Christ, stay with us as we endure and mourn, persist and prepare. In place of our anxiety, give us your peace.
Jesus Christ, heal us.
2021 Annual Catholic Appeal
The Archdiocese of Santa Fe is kicking off its 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA). This year's theme is "Love your Neighbor" and the funds collected will go towards helping various ministries within the State provide support for outreach, charity, children's and religious programs.
The majority of our ACA contributions will be used for Community outreach which includes Catholic Charities, Family Life Ministry at the Newman Centers, Pastoral Outreach Ministries (Hospitals/Prisons, Disabled Persons and Deaf Community Ministries), Social Justice and Respect Life Ministries, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Youth and Young Adult Ministries, Native American Apostolate, Catholic Radio and TV Mass to name a few of the funded programs.
St. Thomas the Apostle Parish received $7,000 for a youth ministry program in 2019 which was established in Abiquiu and Gallina to serve the mission churches and local community youth. These funds continue to be used today to serve our young people.
Please share the ACA news with your neighbors. Everyone is invited to watch Archbishop Wester's ACA presentation at https://archdiocesesantafegiving.org/annual-Catholic-Appeal-Foundation. You are welcome to donate either online, by mail or drop off your donation at the St.Thomas the Apostle Parish Office mailbox in Abiquiu. All donations are welcome and appreciated..
Thank you for your generosity,
Finance Council Chair
