A Troop Prayer for Holy Week!

+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Dear God, 

     Please bless our families, friends, loved ones and all your children, especially those of Saint Raymond of Penafort Parish.  Remember oh, Lord, our departed ones, and may the Blessed Mother keep all unborn babies close to her heart.

     Dear God, please bless us as we continue our Lenten Journey to the Glory of Your Resurrection. 

     Dear God, please bless all of our Parish groups and thank You dear God, particularly for our Trail Life Troop.  Would that you grant these men, boys, and their families, every Grace and Protection, the Wisdom to know Your will, the Grace to accept it, and the Strength to do it always, in Jesus name, Amen. 

– Saint Raymond of Penafort, Pray for Us

– Holy Family, Pray for Us. 

– All for the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

– All through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary

– All in Union with Saint Joseph. 


+ In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Tiny Tim at March for Life 2018!!

Short update on Timothy,

First to all the troop thank you for your prayers and support all year long!

Timothy had to go in for some routine shots on Friday morning (before we all headed into DC for the March for Life).  While there they weighed him in at 18 lbs and 15 ounces!  (If you don’t recall he was born at 2 lbs 2 ounces and left the NICU at just over 8 lbs 3 months later)

Our blog site has the latest action video of the little man!  Enjoy!

And a photo from the March for Life!  The entire Kramer family missed the March for Life last year as mom and dad were hold up in Walter Reed Medical center wondering if little Timothy would survive!  Oh boy did he survive!  Thanks be to God!  And thank you for all the prayers and support.
