Almighty and loving Father, we humbly pray that You will bless
our revival with powerful assistance of your Sweet Spirit.
Grant that our parish may respond to this time of grace and mercy
Through “Jesus heal Our land; What We Must Do”.
Help us put aside all things that crowd our lives so that we can schedule
these four days to come together as a praying and fasting Catholic community.
We ask for the grace to learn to live the simplicity that Jesus taught in our complex world.
Bless our revival priest, Fr. Sidney Speaks, preacher and
teacher. Prepare his heart with the message you have for us. Fill
him with your Sweet Spirit to help us to be transfigured in Christ.
May Mary, Our Mother, our model and guide, obtain from her
divine Son, all that we need to make this time of spiritual renewal.
This we ask of You, Father, Son, and Sweet Holy Spirit who lives
and reigns forever and ever.
We are deeply touched and humbled by your outpouring of love and appreciation during our final weeks in Maryland. Your many well-wishes, hugs, cards, gifts, and receptions have totally overwhelmed us – leading us to constantly marvel, in awe and gratitude, at the greatness of the mighty God we serve.
Thank each of you for your role in making our nearly seven years of ministry at St. Joseph-Largo our happiest and most satisfying.
We’ll be temporarily living with relatives until our home in Powder Spring, GA is built in the late fall; but we’ll still be reachable by email and cell:
Dear clergy, brothers, and sisters, WE WILL MISS YOU ALL and continue to pray for you. May the Lord of love and mercy continue to bless this wonderful parish family, as we bid you a fond farewell.
Yours in Christ,
Deacon Al and Jane Turner
