MISSION STATEMENT  St. Barbara’s has a threefold mission to our parishioners, community and diocese.

PARISHIONERS:  The mission of St. Barbara’s is to support each family and each individual through sound education in the Catholic Faith, programs and services.

All members shall be valued as living images of Christ and all are called to share their God given talents.

St. Barbara’s parish will always be firmly rooted in the Sacramental life of the Church as the principle means for all to grow in holiness.

The parish will reach out to people with physical, emotional and spiritual needs, those not practicing the Faith and any who seek God in their life.

COMMUNITY: St. Barbara’s parish will cordially welcome all who come to worship with us. We will faithfully and lovingly proclaim the truths of the Catholic Church that Christ personally established.

We will actively evangelize those who do not know God, those who have stopped practicing the Faith and make every effort to identify and remove the barriers that block them from being in full communion with us.

We will support and participate in activities that promote human dignity, serve the poor and enhance the quality of life in our community.

DIOCESE: St. Barbara’s will be in full obedience to our Pope and our Bishop, the Successor of the Apostles. We shall make every effort to fully implement the Bishop’’s pastoral plan and faithfully support his work with our prayers and our resources. We shall be especially proactive in fostering vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

We will actively seek ways of working with other parishes in the diocese.

A message from the Diocese. In Bishop Etienne’s Pastoral letter, Generous Distributors of God’s Grace, he calls upon “all parents to pray with their children. Talk to you children about the faith and about God’s plan for their lives. I am asking every parent to help their children prayerfully to reflect upon what God is calling them to do with their lives for him and for his people.” In response to this call, the Office of Pastoral Ministries has developed a monthly prayer calendar for families. Each day offers a different suggestion for prayer and a resource to assist the families. Each month a new calendar will be available, highlighting Holy Days, Saints and other significant days. The calendar is available on our website at www.dioceseofcheyenne.org and daily reminders will be posted on our Facebook page.

 

Family Prayers:

Marriage Prayer:

Almighty and Eternal God,
You blessed the union of married couples so that they might reflect the union of Christ with his Church: look with kindness on them. Renew their marriage covenant, increase our love in them, and strengthen their bond of peace so that, with their children, they may always rejoice in the gift of your blessing. We ask this through Christ our Lord. AMEN
~USCCB
 
 

Prayer for peace in family:

Lord, be with my family. Grant us your peace and harmony, an end to conflict and division. Gift us with compassion to better understand each other, wisdom and love to assist each other, and trust and patience to live together. Grant that through the intercession of your mother, Mary and St. Joseph, our family may become a holy family accepting each other working together in unity, selflessly dedicated to one another and to You, Lord. AMEN

Lord, Jesus, you love each of us individually with a unique and personal love. Touch my life with your saving power, heal and restore me to fullness of life. Help me to give wholly of myself in loving service to others. AMEN

Bless Our Marriage:

We thank You, O God, for the love You have implanted in our hearts. May it always inspire us to be kind in our words, considerate of feelings, and concerned for each other's needs and wishes. Help us to be understanding and forgiving of human weakness and failings. Increase our faith and trust in You and may Your prudence guide our life and love. Bless our marriage, O God with peace and happiness, and make our love fruitful for your glory and our joy both here and in eternity.
