Religious Formation Announcements
22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time, September 3, 2017 The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is Tuesday, September 8th.
Let’s celebrate and honor our Blessed Mother’s birthday through the celebration of daily
Eucharist and the recitation of the Rosary as we remember our special connection to this devo-
tion through our parish patron, St. Dominic.
Our Prayer for Labor Day: On this weekend, when we rest from our usual labors, loving
Father, we pray for all who shoulder the tasks of human labor—in the marketplace, in facto-
ries and offices, in the professions, and in family living. We thank you, Lord, for the gift and
opportunity of work; may our efforts always be pure of heart, for the good of others and the
glory of your name. We lift up to you all who long for just employment and those who work to
defend the rights and needs of workers everywhere. May those of us who are now retired al-
ways remember that we still make a valuable contribution to our Church and our world by our
prayers and deeds of charity. May our working and our resting all give praise to you, until the
day we share together in eternal rest with all our departed, in your Kingdom, as you live and
reign Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
A Prayer to Begin a New School Year: Loving God, thank you for the joys that summer
brought to us. You have blessed us with time to spend with family and friends, rest and relaxa-
tion, and a break from school work. As we return to our studies, inspire us to take on a new
interest in new classes and new topics. Teach us to be your hands and feet where we are, to
love as you love us and to pray for those in need so that You are honored and glorified. Be
with us as we discover old friendships and start new ones. Amen.
