Meet our Confirmation Students!
This week: Hannah Litwaitis
Hello, my name is Hannah Elizabeth Litwaitis. I am 15 years old and in 10th grade. My parents are Jeff and Nikki Litwaitis. I have 1 sister named Emma Litwaitis. My favorite activities are going camping and swimming, and during the school year I am involved in volleyball and band. The reason I want to be confirmed is because the sacraments are very important to me as I go through my high school years and into my adult life. What my Catholic faith means to me is, I will always have the power of prayer to help me through tough situations in my life and knowing God is watching over me at all times. I see myself sharing the faith in the future by, attending mass and helping others with their religion.
An Ash Wednesday Prayer
"Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust."
You remind us today, oh Lord, of our origin and end.
In the beginning, You fashioned us in the Garden.
You dignified dust with the Breath of Life.
You made us in Your image and likeness.
You led Your people through the dust of the Sinai
wilderness to the Promised Land.
You overcame temptation in the dry desert.
You healed the blind with dirt and clay.
Three times Your body stirred the dust
as you fell on the road to Calvary.
Hear the cry of Your people!
One day we will return to dust.
This Lenten season, stir our minds to contemplate You,
our hearts to love You, and our bodies to serve
You in our brothers and sisters.
May our prayer, fasting, and almsgiving
be Your breath alive in us.
