This liturgical year, 2020-21, many of our parishioners are participating in a 'Spiritual Adoption.' They have chosen one person, usually someone close to them or whom they care about, and are praying for their conversion or return to the Catholic faith. The names are confidential and a silent bond between pray-er and adoptee.
Each week, Father suggests a different prayer or action as an intention for our spiritual adoptee. We are asked to pray or act each day of the week. The commitment of focused prayer is powerful for the adoptee and spiritually rewarding for the pray-er.
The suggested prayers or actions are in each week's bulletin and are also reproduced here.
