Good and loving Father, you are the give of all gifts. We give you thanks for the gift of faith that we share, and we give you glory for the hope of Eternal Life that welcomes us into your Kingdom.
Father, hear your Church's prayer that we may always serve you and your people with a true spirit of humility and generosity. May our Diocesan Appeal be an opportunity for us to strengthen our effort to live always in our Spirit working for your greater glory.
We ask this as your Church, as your children, and as your family, through Christ our Lord, Amen.
