          That the judicial system may provide a fair and just hearing for all those who come before the courts.

Tuesday – For those in Nursing Homes and Hospitals
          For those who are isolated and unable to receive visits from loved ones that they always know that the Lord is with them and that they know the love of family.

Wednesday – For Educators, Students and Administrators
          That the decisions that need to be made for the return to school will provide a safe environment for education.

Thursday – For those Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation
          That the light of the Holy Spirit will strengthen those who are confirmed to become true heralds of the Gospel.

Friday – For Children Receiving First Communion
          May the Eucharist be a constant source of nourish for our young children today and throughout their lives.
