As a concrete response to this request, I would like to suggest that all members of Nativity of Our Lady Parish say one Our Father, one Hail Mary and one Glory Be every day between now and February 28th for these intentions.
Also in keeping with our bishop's request, a special votive Mass for the newly elected pope will be announced at the appropriate time.
Feast of the Chair of St. Peter
