LET US REMEMBER ... that we are in the holy presence of God.

In 2021, may we remain hopeful and pray always for peace.

Invocation for Peace
Loving God, you created us and you call us to live as brothers and sisters.
Give us the strength daily to be instruments of peace;
enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister.
Make us sensitive to the plea of our citizens who entreat us to turn our weapons of war into implements of peace,
our trepidation into confident trust, and our quarreling into forgiveness.
Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands.
Renew our hearts and minds, so that our way of life will always be that of Shalom, Peace, Salaam!  Amen.
- Pope Francis

Saint Joseph, patron of Cotter Schools. . . pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts. . . forever.
