Please continue to hold the diocese and this campaign in your prayers
God and Father of our Lord Jesus,
as we enter into a new millennium,
we face new needs and challenges.
We seek the resources necessary to build your Kingdom more effectively
and to proclaim everywhere
your Good News of salvation.
Grant us the courage and zeal
to open our hearts generously to the
call to bear witness to you
and to serve our brothers and sisters,
united in charity.
Help us, with the gift of your Holy Spirit,
to be always rooted in faith,
as together we move forward in hope,
revealing your presence in our lives
and in the life of this diocesan church.
These things we ask, through the
intercession of Mary Immaculate
and of Saint Thomas More,
and in the name of your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, forever and ever.
