By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Zechariah (father of John the Baptist), filled with the Holy Spirit, praised his God whose presence and power was breaking forth in his life. Please join us at a prayer breakfast for Catholic men of the Archdiocese of St. Louis where we will share together in the spirit of gratitude and praise of God. After the breakfast meal there will be an opportunity to hear one man’s experience of the transforming love of Christ in his own life and a time of prayer for the needs of all present.
