Prayer of the Month – August 2022

Aug 4, 2022 | Prayer of the Month

For all small businesses struggling to survive in the aftermath of the pandemic.
May God bless the employers and the employees of small businesses so they can continue to prosper through these difficult times.
We ask for the intercession of Saint Joseph the Worker to renew our small businesses and their employees,
that we can continue to honor our vocation to work as was given to us by our Creator,
that we may continue a path to growth, be fair and just to our employees
so that all may be granted a dignified life through our work.
