General Announcement


Today we have a short video on Sister Madonna Buder, also known as the Iron Nun. She is 86 years old, and is the oldest person ever to finish an Ironman Triathlon.
Let us pray, God of action, help us to recognize our potential as human beings, both physically and mentally. May we learn that we can overcome any limit set by ourselves and others, and can keep raising the bar of what we can do.
We pray this in the name of all that is good and holy. AMEN
