Source of all life and light, We come before you asking your blessing On our Parish Mission.
We differ from one another in many ways: In ages, in interests, And in experiences.
Still we share In being called to serve you As members of your holy Church.
Empower us to explore your Gospel more fully So that our lives may be further enriched By encounters with your Word.
As we prepare for our Mission, Fill our hearts with your grace So that we might be open to your message.
Heal our wounds, Strengthen our commitments, Rekindle our love, And remind us of our worth In your eternal plan.
Bless our missionary, Fr. James DiLuzio, and grant him safe travel to us.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever.
