On Thursday, January 19th the Community of the Ignatian Spiritual Life Center blessed the doors of St. Agnes Church as sanctuary space for our immigrant sisters and brothers. Pray with us...
We ask for your blessing tonight on these holy doors.
You already call this place a sanctuary, may we live into what that truly means.
Give us the courage to open these doors and the doors of our hearts to all who knock and seek refuge.
God, in your Love, through your Son, with your Spirit,
Bless these doors and the doors of our hearts.
You make our work possible.
