Fr. Dave’s Story

Site created on December 10, 2020

Welcome! As Friends of Fr. Dave Ayotte, we work to keep his much-loved communities updated and connected here, in one place. Our mission is to pray communally for healing and peace. There is a prayer calendar that unites us as one community coming together and loving our brother under the Ways to Help Tab. Your words of hope and encouragement and individual prayers are also very welcome and treasured.  PLEASE DO NOT CLICK THE TRIBUTE TAB to contribute to CaringBridge; it is the organization that manages the website and is not connected to Fr. Dave or his charities. (Others have contributed to keep the site running and it will not go down.) Should you wish to make a monetary gift, Fr. Dave suggests donating to the Holy Cross Africa Ministry of St. Monica, also found under the Ways to Help tab.   With Gratitude and Love, Caitlin Smith and Mary Garvey, Friends of Fr. Dave Ayotte.

Journal entry by Mary Garvey

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

                                                                          The Memorare
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.
