Today’s Readings

Capital Campaign Prayer

O good and gracious God, we come to you with grateful hearts for all the blessings you have bestowed upon us since the foundation of this great parish.

You have entrusted to us the riches of the Father’s mercy to the world around us. May we remain steadfast in our response to your call for ministry. Make us faithful stewards of the many gifts you have entrusted to our care.

May the Capital Campaign we have begun enliven our hearts to be more generous, transparent and collaborative in all that we do as one parish family.

Grant wisdom to all who are engaged in the plans and designs of our place of worship; safety to all construction workers and volunteers in the field.

Through the intercession of St. Faustina, apostle of mercy and our patroness, may this Capital Campaign and all our parish endeavors be accomplished according to your holy will.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. St. Faustina, pray for us!
