As members of St. Francis of Assisi’s Catholic Healing Professionals, our goal is the spiritual and emotional healing and well-being of all those God brings to our church doors. With God’s grace, we will use our professional skills and a gentle encouragement toward Scripture, personal prayer and the Sacraments.
Father, We come to you today to affirm our commitment to be a reflection of Your light in this world. We open ourselves to receive Your grace, to use the talents You have placed within us and to honor the trust You have placed in us. Help us to mirror You in every relationship, decision and action of our lives. May Your Holy Spirit work within us and through us to do Your work. Amen
