Resources Regarding the Return to Mass

The Archdiocese Office of Worship and Evangelization has created several videos featuring Archdiocesan speakers that highlight the privilege and joy of being able to celebrate the Eucharist together as the Body of Christ.  Each of these very brief videos addresses a specific facet of what a gift and a privilege it is for us to attend Sunday Mass. Please enjoy these videos and share with others.

POPE FRANCIS PROCLAIMS “YEAR OF ST JOSEPH”

Pope Francis has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, until December 8, 2021. The special year marks the 150th Anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. The Holy Father encourages all to say a daily prayer to St. Joseph during this special year.

POPE FRANCIS’ PRAYER INTENTION FOR JUNE 2021

The Beauty of Marriage. Let us pray for young people who are preparing for marriage with the support of a Christian community: may they grow in love, with generosity, faithfulness, and patience.

JUNE IS THE MONTH OF THE SACRED HEART

Devotion to the Sacred Heart emphasizes the vastness of God’s concern and love for struggling humanity. It serves as a reminder to sinful and hurting people to trust in His Heart, which so tenderly loves each of us.

A PRAYER FOR PROTECTION IN TIME OF PANDEMIC

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith. O loving mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee. Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died. Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure. Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.

 

Under thy protection, we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God. In our needs, despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
Adapted from the prayer of Pope Francis

PRAYER TO CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME

Father of all, Creator and ruler of the universe, You entrusted your world to us as a gift. Help us to care for it and all people, that we may live in a right relationship-- with You, with ourselves, with one another, and with creation.


Christ our Lord, both divine and human, You lived among us and died for our sins. Help us to imitate your love for the human family by recognizing that we are all connected— to our brothers and sisters around the world, to those in poverty impacted by environmental devastation, and to future generations.


Holy Spirit, the giver of wisdom and love, You breathe life in us and guide us. Help us to live according to your vision, stirring to action the hearts of all—
individuals and families, communities of faith, and civil and political leaders.


Triune God, help us to hear the cry of those in poverty, and the cry of the earth, so that we may together care for our common home. Amen.

This prayer from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is based on Pope Francis' Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home

Amen.

HOSPITAL VISITATION FROM OUR PRIESTS

Please remember that because of HIPPA rules, hospitals will not call Saint Lawrence and tell us when you are in the hospital. Even if you give the hospital the name of our church, they will not pass on your hospital admission to us. When you are admitted to the hospital, please have a family member call Saint Lawrence (317-546-4065) and let us know of your illness. If you need a priest in an emergency, please use our emergency phone (317-987-7818).

Over the winter months many items have been placed in the Lost and Found tote located in the narthex of the church. If you or your children have lost clothing, hats, gloves, books, etc., please check the tote near the “in door” at Saint Lawrence Church. All items not claimed by June 13 will be donated to St. Vincent dePaul Society.
