O God, in this interim time we pray for our parish family,
that we may be genuine in our self-reflection, tireless in our
commitment, patient in our discernment, loving in our
communion, open in our search, and daring in our faith.
We thank you for the gifts, talents and skills with which you
have blessed us. We thank you for the experiences that have
brought us to this moment. Help us accept change as a gift
of your direction for our journey in this transition.
Instill in us a vision of the church’s family; that, guided by
your Holy Spirit, we will be united in love and joyfully
accomplish this mission, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
