For The Parish Renewal Experience
You sent Your Son into the world
as Lord, Redeemer and Teacher,
Pour upon us,
the Spirit whom Jesus promised,
to renew, to strengthen and to guide us
as we commit ourselves
to building up your Church
in holiness and joy.
Father, we pray for your blessing
to make the Parish
an effective means to transform
our Catholics into
committed witnesses of Christ.
Grant to the participants
the spirit of openness, penitence and hope,
and to those helping in the weekend -
wisdom, generosity and the joy
of serving You and the Parish.
Lord, teach us to know, love and serve You
through the bond of love that binds us to our
brothers and sisters so that together,
we will extend Your Kingdom here on earth.
