O Mary, Comfortress of the afflicted, pray for us who cry out to thee!

In spite of the natural disaster happening in our own city and diocese, the heart of our life continues uninterrupted. The Sisters continue to gather for our regular periods of prayer throughout the day, and individually and communally have increased the fervor and amount of prayer and supplication offered to our good God on behalf of the people of our Diocese.
Please keep the people of the Diocese of Santa Rosa in your prayers! Pray for protection and for the courage and wisdom necessary to proceed with rebuilding and re-establishing our diocese, schools, and cities.
