Please take the time each day or as often as possible to pray for the successful completion of a Parish Center for Old St. Mary’s Church and School. In 2014, we need to raise $1.4 million in cash donations to start building, so we can “Complete the Vision” for the Old St. Mary’s campus.
Loving God, giver of all good things, you are our strength, and the well‐spring of grace. With confident faith, we entrust our parish building project to your care. May the Holy Spirit be thearchitect of our efforts to serve your people.
With open and generous hearts, help us to accept the challenges and responsibilities of this undertaking. Guide us as we strive to fulfill the mission to be the presence of your Son in the world. Placing our trust in you, we make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Blessed Mary of the Assumption, pray for us.
