In times of crisis, many people rely on their faith and head to Church. What are we to do, as a faith community, when physically going to Church is not an option? Take heed of this message from the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
“In Christian usage, the word "church" designates the liturgical assembly, but also the local community or the whole universal community of believers. These three meanings are inseparable.”
Our Church is not just the building, but the whole universal community of believers. Use the prayer request form below to add your own personal intentions to our IWA prayer list. The prayer intentions list is available to all our students, faculty, and families in the Campus Ministry section of our website, and will be updated weekly. Praised be the Incarnate Word, in whom our faith remains.
