Father, Creator of all, thank you for summer!
Thank you for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight!
Thank you for the beauty I see all around me and for the 
opportunity to be outside and enjoy Your creation.
Thank you for the increased time I have to be with my friends and
family, and for the more casual pace of the summer season.
Draw me closer to You this summer.
Teach me how I can pray no matter where I am or what I am doing.
Warm my soul with the awareness of Your presence and light my
path with Your Word and Counsel.
As I enjoy Your creation, create in me a pure heart and a hunger and
a thirst for you.
Amen.

Father Joseph and the staff of St. Cecilia’s Church wish you a safe, healthy and joyful summer season.
