Message from Bishop David Ricken and Invitation to Say the Wyoming Prayer

At the start of the 2015 school and religious education year Bishop David Ricken recorded the messages below. Teachers and catechists are encouraged to share the message with students in conjunction with the distribution of Wyoming Prayer Cards throughout all diocesan Catholic schools.

Bishop Ricken penned the prayer on his long drives in Wyoming and still prays it. He invites all students, families to join him in this prayer about being open to God's will in God's time.

The video greeting from Bishop Ricken is less than 4 minutes long and is intended for viewing by students in our parish religious education programs. It can be streamed from the internet or downloaded and played from your computer.

We recommend downloading the video for a higher quality viewing experience, especially if you reside in an area with intermittent internet service. If you download the video, please allow sufficient time for the HD video file to download (333 MB).

Printable Prayer Cards

For your convenience we are providing a printable set of prayer cards (8 per page), formatted for color printing in landscape orientation. It is setup for two-sided printing on card stock by flipping on short edge.
