Gartland Service Award

Deborah Blakey and Laura Frizzell were presented the Gartland Service Award December 5, 2020 by the Most Reverend Stephen D. Parkes, D.D., Bishop of Savannah. Plaques to commemorate the achievement were presented by council number 10541 of the Knights of Columbus. The award is an honor bestowed by the Diocese of Savannah on people who have given distinguished service to the church in the tradition of its first bishop, Francis X. Gartland, who served from 1850-54. The recipients, nominated by their pastors, are volunteers who have worked quietly behind the scenes to make a difference in parish and community life.

Annual Catholic Appeal Prayer

Annual Catholic Appeal Prayer

O Mary, you always brighten our path as a sign of salvation and of hope.

We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining Steadfast In Faith.

O loving Mother, you know what we need, and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.

Intercede for us with your Son Jesus, the Divine Physician, for those who have fallen ill, for those who are vulnerable, and for those who have died.

Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.

Help us, O Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows, so as to lead us, through the Cross, to the glory of the Resurrection.

Amen
