Heavenly Father and Creator, Jesus Christ our Redeemer and Holy Spirit look kindly upon each family on the Turtle Mountain Reservation. Each day we consecrate ourselves to you including our trials and joys, so that each home may become a temple of peace, harmony and love. We ask Good St. Ann, St. Anthony, St. Michael, St. Benedict, St. John the Baptist and St. Kateri Tekakwitha, our special friends, to protect and guide each person in our community. We praise and give thanks to those who lived before us, who have passed on to us beautiful examples of good family life and Catholic traditions.
