“Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God” It is in prayer that we ask for guidance and listen to the word that God gives us. During this Advent time of preparation, make your prayer such that you seek the way of God for your life. Could this way be in service to the Church? For more information call Fr.
