Prayer for the Week

    Risen Christ, you have raised our human nature to the throne of heaven: help us to seek and serve you, that we may join you at the Father's side, where you reign with the Spirit in glory, now and for ever.

This week's Quote

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be - and not building bridges - is not Christian.”

Pope Francis
