Heavenly Father, give us the grace to build your Kingdom in our Diocese. We can only accomplish this noble task by allowing You to expand our hearts.
Grant us compassionate hearts for the poor and suffering among us, hopeful hearts for the men now in seminary, grateful hearts to provide care for the well-being of our retired priests, and zealous hearts for the formation of our Catholic college students.
As we look to the future and the celebration of the Centennial of our Diocese, we want to give You our faithful hearts. It is only with faithful hearts that our Diocesan campaign will bear fruit and assist You in the building up of Your Kingdom.
With Mary our Mother, and moved by the Holy Spirit, we make this prayer through Your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. We entrust our humble efforts to You, with a plea for success, as we reach out to those who need us.
