Prayer for Vocations

O God, you have chosen the Apostles

to make disciples of all nations

and by Baptism and Confirmation

have called all of us to build up your Holy Church.

We earnestly implore you to choose from among us,

your children, many priests, deacons, brothers, and sisters

who will love you with their whole heart

and will gladly spend their entire lives

to make you known and loved by all. Amen.

Prayer for Reverence for Life

Almighty God, giver of all that is good,
we thank you for the precious gift of human life:

For life in the womb, coming from your creative power,

For the life of children,
making us glad with their freshness and promise,

For the life of young people,
hoping for a better world,

For the life of people who are disabled,
teaching us that every life has value,

For the life of the elderly,
witnessing to the ageless values of patience and wisdom.

Like Blessed Mary, may we always say “yes” to your gift.

May we defend it and promote it
from conception to its natural end.

And bring us at last, O Father,
to the fullness of eternal life in Jesus Christ,
our Lord. Amen.

Stewardship Prayer

O God, the Father of every gift,

all that we are and have comes from your hand.

In Jesus Christ, your Son,

you have given us the greatest of all gifts.

Fill our hearts with his love,

so that we may be parish communities

of faithful, caring people.

Grant us the grace to be good stewards

who, in the name and spirit of Jesus,

share our gifts of time, talent and treasure

for the building up of your Kingdom

in our Archdiocese and throughout the world.

May we see Project Advance as our way

to live gratefully and give generously

for your honour and glory.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
