As we begin September, which is national Suicide Prevention Month, let us remember all those that suffer from Mental Illness by including this prayer as a part of you monthly intentions:
Loving God, you are always near to us, especially when we are weak, suffering and vulnerable. Reach out to those who experience mental illness. Lift their burdens, calm their anxiety, and quiet their fears. Surround them with your healing presence that they may know that they are not alone. We ask this through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and in the name of your Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen. ~Contributed by The Catholic Health Association of the United States
Brochures collated by AHM outlining area resources are available at the entrances to the church and are posted on the bulletin boards by the entrances to the church. If you or someone you love is struggling, please reach out for help.
