Salpointe Weekly Peek - November 3, 2023

Happy Friday, Lancers!

God of good will, We ask that You inspire each of us to follow Your will more closely, And for each of us to find the joy of our vocation. We pray especially for those who are discerning a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. May all of us have the strength to listen for Your quiet voice moving in our lives, And may we cultivate hearts of service directed towards You. We make this prayer in Your Holy Name, Amen. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us.
