As our parish contends with our changing world, and adopts the missionary posture necessary to bring the light of the Gospel to it in our time, grant us the courage to re-evaluate all that we are doing in light of that same mission given to us by your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Help us to “make and equip disciples who joyfully go and invite others to Jesus.”
We ask in this time especially, as we discern a path forward along with our Archdiocese, for a fresh outpouring of your Holy Spirit, that we would be united and explosively alive. Strengthen our community through bonds of friendship, growth in holiness, and commitment to our mission. Empower us for the work of ministry so as to transform the world, making present Your Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
We ask all this through Jesus Christ your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.
