you are Catholic and new to the area,
we invite you to
register with the parish office so we may serve you more
We ask your
blessing, Gracious God, on our parish. May it always assemble in peace, in reconciliation, justice and
joy, in praise of you and in service to the world. May we always
accept each other with gratitude and build up each other as members
of one body. Teach us to give instead of demanding, to trust others
rather than to compel trust, to serve rather than to be served.
Make us thankful for the variety of gifts and differences of
personality that enrich us. Help us to accept our differences of
age, giving respect to the old and encouragement to the young.
Never let us be satisfied with imperfections but also teach us that
patience which is yours. In peace let us be open to listen and to
speak with readiness to learn. Purge from our hearts all
bitterness, jealousy and thoughts of revenge. Lift us out of
depression and sadness. Let us accept joyfully the service of those
who lead us, so that we may grow together in love. May we be one as
your Son, Jesus Christ, prayed that we might be. With him in the
unity of the holy Spirit we give you all honour and glory.
