Almighty and ever-living God, you invite us, your chosen people to share in the work of your kingdom.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit guide the effort of our parishes in their service of evangelization and outreach.
Help us to be people of welcome and hospitality, seeking the lost and nurturing the brokenhearted with your Gospel of peace and hope.
We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
