Dear Friends of Fr. Dave,
It is with feelings of sadness for those left behind and joy for a soul reunited with her son that we announce the passing of Sheila Ayotte, Fr. Dave's mother. We ask that God grant Fr. Dave's sister, Maureen, peace and comfort during this time. Please keep them all in your prayers and we wish you a hopeful and healthy Christmas.
“When all seems gray, dark, bleak, obscure, and meaningless, without any real hope, then lift up your mind, heart, and soul to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and she will never fail you! She will stretch out her gentle but firm hand and pull you out of the quicksand of your own helplessness!” Fr. Ed Broom, O.M.V
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
