Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., has shared the following prayer request with the faithful of the Diocese of Trenton: Please pray for all those who have died or have been injured in the recent winter storms, especially in Texas. We pray especially for those whose homes have been destroyed or who are without power and heat and for first responders who are offering assistance to those with urgent needs. In our Lenten almsgiving, let us find concrete ways to help our brothers and sisters. Let us entrust them in prayer to Our Blessed Mother Mary and St. Joseph.
