Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,

After Jesus concluded His prayers, He was asked "Lord, teach us how to pray." He then responded with the Lord's Prayer: Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name

We are all familiar with this prayer. But what is prayer? It is an open invitation to talk to our Creator. Prayer doesn't have to be formal words written by someone else, it can just be a spontaneous conversation, like you have with an old friend.

The Priests of the Sacred Heart pray for you each day. Your gifts help them do good works in their ministries both here and overseas. Our retired Priests pray for you, as well. They know that your generosity allows them to have good meals, needed healthcare and a safe place to live.

Be assured you and your intentions will be remembered in our daily Masses and prayers.

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus bless you with His loving peace.

Gratefully in Christ,

Father Dominic
