Lord God, you alone are the source of every good gift, of the vast array of our
universe, and the mystery of each human life. We praise you and we thank you for your great power and your tender,
Everything we are and everything we have is your gift, and after having created us
you have given us into the keeping of your son, Jesus Christ.
Fill our minds with his truth and our hearts with his love, that in his spirit
we may be bonded together into a community of faith, a parish family, caring people.
In the name and spirit of Jesus give us the grace to be good stewards
of the gifts entrusted to us, to share our time, our talent, our material gifts
as an outward sign of treasure we hold in Jesus.
