Due to the current COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic and our exercise of abundant caution and care for one another, the diocesan confirmations which were scheduled for Sunday, March 22, have been cancelled. Please adhere to the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) for your safety and the safety of your family.

As people of faith, in times like these, we are called to pray. So we pray for those who are on the front lines of fighting the virus and all healthcare providers. We pray for healing for the sick and for those who are caring for them, and we pray for those in positions of authority to make wise decisions. Finally, we pray for the spirit of perseverance to get through these days of trial.

We offer this prayer:
O God of unchangeable power and eternal light, look favorably on your children who are dealing with this crisis, and give us the strength and courage to trust in your unfailing love and mercy, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
