Leading up to our Parish Mission, Fr. Steiner asked that families say this prayer in support of the mission:
Heavenly Father, in a short time our parish will begin its special time of mission.
Open the hearts and minds of each one of us so that we might receive your word with eager joy. Let this parish and its members be the “good ground” in which the sower’s seed will take deep root and produce an abundant harvest.
Bless the missionary who will break open your word for us with his preaching. May he be a gentle but ardent and faithful servant of your good news.
Help us to invite and welcome into our parish community all of those who may feel distant from your loving care. May charity and our witness of faith help them to find you once again.
Through the intercession of Mary, your Mother and first disciple, help us to make this local community of faithful disciples. May this parish mission strengthen our faith and help us in our desire to serve you until “your kingdom come and your will be done.”
We ask you through our Lord, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.
