Our Parish Mission Prayer
St. Edward Parish Mission Prayer
Heavenly Father, you call us from many lands to gather around your table. Grant us the grace to embrace our multicultural diversity as we unite to celebrate Eucharist as one Catholic faith community.
Word of God, you speak of your love for us. Help us follow the example of your Word as we welcome the stranger in our midst and be haven and consolation to those in need.
Bread of Life, You call us to be bread for the world. Open our hearts that we may recognize Christ broken in our midst. Be our nourishment and strength as we reach out with our hands to help.
Spirit of God, you give your wisdom to those who seek you. Show us the way as we pass on to all youths entrusted to our care through our St. Edward School and our Religious Education Program the traditions, teachings and values of our Catholic faith.
God our Father, infuse our hearts and minds with your will as we commit ourselves to be active in our parish and to spread your Good News to those who have yet to partake of your feast.
We ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Thanks to Mercy Sobrevilla, whose help made this prayer possible.
