LasCasas Project


 
 

Recipient: National Coalition for Church Vocations (NCCV) Native American Outreach Project

Native Americans are often forgotten in Catholic Church vocation resource development. The Las Casas grant allowed NCCV to develop a Native American vocation prayer card in collaboration with Native Americans. The new resource honors the Catholic tradition of Native Americans. It is based on Psalm 139:24 “Lead me in the ancient paths.” Sister Deborah Bomyea, OP (Sinsinawa / Mohawk) authored the prayer and Gus Antone (Tohonno O’odham) is the artist.

This prayer card is 2-color and is available in packages of 100 from NCCV (call 773.955.5453). The complete text is posted on the NCCV website.

“O Great Spirit, you know my heart.
Guide me as I walk life’s journey.
Help me to know the path I am to walk.”
