O Immaculate Virgin, mother of the true God and

mother of the Church! You, who revealed your clem-


ency and your pity to all those who ask for your protec-
tion, hear the prayer that we address to you with filial
trust, and present it to your Son Jesus, our sole Re-
deemer.

Mother of Mercy, teacher of hidden and silent sacrifice,


to you we dedicate on this day all our being and all our
love. We also dedicate to you our life, our work, our
joys, our infirmities, and our sorrows. Grant peace, jus-
tice, and prosperity to our people, for we entrust to your
care all that we have and all that we are, our Lady and
Mother.

We wish to be entirely yours and to walk with you along


the way of complete faithfulness to Jesus Christ and his
Church: hold us always in your loving hand. Virgin of
Guadalupe, Mother of the Americas, we pray to you for
all the bishops, that they may lead the faithful along
paths of intense Christian life, of love and humble ser-
vice of God and souls. Grant to our homes the grace of
loving and respecting life in its beginnings, with the
same love with which you conceived in your womb the
life of the Son of God. Blessed Virgin Mary, protect our
families, so that they may always be united, and bless
the upbringing of our children.

Thus, Most Holy Mother, with the peace of God in our


conscience, with our hearts free from evil and hatred,
we will be able to bring to all true joy and true peace,
which come to us from your son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
who with God the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and
reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Foundations of our Families


Please consider donating a brick for the reflection place Surrounding the Ten Commandment / Beatitude Monument.
Having your name and message engraved on the brick is a special way of commemorating an event or honoring your
family. Below are some of the messages you can place on the brick.

• Commemorating a first communion • Giving thanks to God for a prayer answered


• Honoring a serviceman in the family • In memory of a love one
• Celebrating a 20th wedding anniversary • A remembrance of your life in our parish

Donating a brick also benefits our parish in many ways.


• Pays for some of the maintenance and repairs in the campus.
• Pays for the snow removal which could be substantial.
• Make extraordinary payment towards reducing the Parish mortgage.
• Provide a place for reflection and contemplation.

If you have questions or suggestions please send your email to admin@CTKlombard.org or contact us at the rectory 1-
630-629-1717. Your donation is Tax deductible. You can send your completed order form to the rectory. Let us be
grateful for the past, celebrate the present and pray for wisdom in the future, through Christ our King.

not always have the resources to help parishioners, so the diocese supplements us with
