New "Prayer Room" on Our Web Site
In the words of Alfred Tennyson, "More things are wrought by prayer than this
world dreams of."  There is a new Resources
page on our site that is focused on
prayer, where we, as St. Christopher parishioners, can learn about and join
together in praying for each other's concerns and intentions.  You are invited to
contribute your intentions (large and small, your thanksgiving or your needs)
so that we may all join in lifting them in prayer.  Quiet time with God spent
thanking Him, seeking His will, listening . . . is a gift that you give yourself!   
May our relationship with God be strengthened, and may our capacity to love
and be loved increase as our hearts reach out to each other.
