Today we celebrate our Patronal Feast.
May the Blessed Virgin continue to watch over and protect us.

O God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin
prepared a worthy dwelling for your Son, grant, we pray, that, as you
preserved her from every stain by virtue of the Death of your Son, which you foresaw, so,
through her intercession, we, too, may be cleansed and admitted to your presence. Through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
