Lord God, by the creation of the first Eve and her spouse, you made marriage and the family the foundation of all human community.

By the birth of your Son, Jesus, to the new Eve, Mary, our mother, and her most chaste spouse, Joseph, you radically altered human history. Through this Holy Family you made a path for our salvation.

Strengthen the families of this world and impart to them the gifts of the Holy Spirit.May the upcoming World Meeting of Families with the Holy Father serve to give you glory, and bring strength and fortitude to families, who are being assaulted by evil from every direction.

May the meeting be a source of light and hope to all the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord.



St. Michael is not only the Patron Saint of our Parish, but is also the Patron Saint of  many, including  EMT’s, Mariners, Paratroopers, Police Officers, Security Forces, and Guards and Soldiers.  He is often portrayed holding scales as he is also the Patron saint of the dying in which he is said to be weighing souls.
