The Grace of God is Greater Yet! Sometimes we have problems in our lives that just seem insurmountable or we see tragic events in society that just make us scratch our heads and wonder, “Can it get any worse?” No matter what situation you find yourself in, you are in a position to encounter God. This is true because God is always wanting to encounter you! God is full of surprises and full of blessings. Here at St. Lawrence we worship God, thank the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for the blessings in our lives, and ask his help in our lives and in our world. You are invited to attend as we celebrate the Great Eucharistic Feast of Jesus Christ each day of the week, especially on Sundays. If you want to find out more about St. Lawrence parish, just ask one of our fine parishioners, deacon, or priests. God bless you, and always remember: The Grace of God is Greater Yet!
Diocese of Sioux City – Prayer for Vocations
God our Father, we beg You for an increase in religious vocations. Help our people offer their lives in service to You. Let them hear Your Spirit’s invitation, and awaken in their hearts a desire to respond with courage, generosity, and joy. Raise up from our families faithful leaders who will serve as priests, deacons and consecrated religious, as we entrust to Your care all who seek to do Your will. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
