I invite you to bring a Mass Journal to write one thought God gives you from a song, prayer, Bible reading or homily - one idea to use in your daily prayer to become the-best-version-of-yourself. If you do not have a Mass Journal we have small notebooks as well as larger Mass Journals available in the Gift Shop.
Te invito traer un Diario de Misa (Mass Journal) para escribir un pensamiento que Dios te da de un canto, oración, lectura bíblica o homilía - una idea para usar en tu oración diaria para ser la-mejor-versión-de-ti-mismo. Si tienes un Diario de Misa tenemos cuadernitos y Mass Journals disponibles en la tiendita.

As you know, many people are facing fear and uncertainty. I invite you to join in united prayer at 3 pm - from now until Easter. 148 have filled out commitment slips which we made into bouquets symbolizing the prayer we offer for our nation and its leaders.

Como sabes, muchos están enfrentando miedo e incertidumbre. Te invito unirse en oración a las 3 pm - desde ahora hasta Pascua. 148 han llenado hojitas de compromiso que hemos hecho en ramitos simbolizando la oración que ofrecemos por nuestra nación y sus líderes.
