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
