Our new priest, Fr. David Fons, will be starting on July 1. We invite you to pray a novena for him, starting June 22. It will end on June 30, and on July 1 we’ll pray a prayer of thanksgiving.

Novena Prayer for Fr. Fons

O Mary, Mother of Jesus, you were with Jesus
at the beginning of His life and mission.
You stood beside Jesus when He was lifted
on the cross and gave His life for all.
We ask you now to be with Fr. Fons,
who gives himself in service to God’s people.
Intercede for him that he may grow in holiness;
proclaim God’s word with courage;
celebrate the sacraments with joy;
and be among God’s people as Jesus,
the Good Shepherd, was.
We offer this prayer to God, the Father, 
through your intercession,
in the name of your Son, Jesus,
and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
