Prayer for St. Thomas Parish


Lord God, as a parish family we come to you.

We come from different walks of life, different countries,

customs and experiences.

Yet we come in one faith to worship you.


Form us into a loving, caring family.

Gift us with openness to You and each other.


May we never tire in our desire to serve You.

In our vision, give us hope;

in our struggles assurance;

in our prayer, perseverance;

in our plans, courage and inspiration.


May the stranger find a welcome among us,

the searcher guidance,

the doubter a strong faith,

the newcomer acceptance and

the burdened refreshment.


Renew us in mind, body and spirit so we can

renew others through Christ…… Amen.


Fr. Michael Tracey
