    Some Spiritual Exercises from Joe Paprocki and Julianna

    Stanz: Put them in your backpack, they are designed to

    deepen your commitment to the church. Please share

    it your First Communion prayer book and rosary?

    Is it a scapular? Is it your baptismal gown? Read

    John 17, Jesus' prayer for the church.

    In the coming week, pray each day for a different

    person who was instrumental in passing on the

    Catholic Faith to yo
