Prayers of the People

We pray today for all who are marching in peaceful protest and all who are in danger by virtue of their labor (including Aaron, Nathan, Anthony, Olivia, Mary, Amy, Elaine and Ashley), for healing for all who have COVID-19 including Kathleen and Gustavo Aguilera Torres (Jason's aunt and uncle in Mexico), Carmen Hanchard, Martha Wright, and Raul Chavez, and for all who need God's healing grace and presence including Anthony Giannone Sr., Lynette Lewis, Kelly Chadwick, Aida Carino, Michael Sullivan and his wife Mary (due on June 8th), Stevan Cavalier, and Karen Marchewka, among others.

We thank you for all the blessings you have bestowed on us and for those who celebrate birthdays this week including Peter Walsh Sr. who turned 80 on Wednesday, and Vera Johnson, whose birthday is today. Happy Birthday!

We pray for the more than 110,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19, and for all who have died including Cory Tabb (Yonkers resident and friend), Jackie McKernan (Jason's aunt), Dennis Drap, as well as those who have died the world over from disease, racism, war, terrorism and natural disasters. May the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
