Prayer for Religious Freedom

O God our Creator, from your provident hand  we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ. Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us— this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”  Amen.

Special Collection


Beginning at age 65, priests of the Diocese of Biloxi who do not belong to a Religious Order are provided with a modest pension.  The funds for this pension come from an endowment to which parishes pay a yearly assessment.  There is also a small supplement to the pension from the Catholic Sharing Appeal.  These pension/retirement income sources have not kept pace with inflation.  Rather than asking parishes to contribute more to the endowment, the Diocese has opted to have a direct appeal on Father’s Day.  The annual second collection will supplement the pension given to diocesan priests of retirement age.  Please give generously to the Father’s Day Special Collection for the well deserving priests of the Diocese of Biloxi.
