St. Patrick Parish Prayer
Loving God, as a parish community,
we stand with you as a beacon of hope
in the heart of the city.
You have blessed us with devoted
members who have been nourished
by your Word and Eucharist,
who have ministered among us,
and who have been reconciled.
We prayerfully remember those who
have been welcomed into eternal life
and now pray for us.
We pledge now to continue your mission
with wisdom and generosity,
to be a sign of peace and welcome
in our valley,
to show reverence for one another
and for all of creation,
to use our gifts and talents to lift
the burdens of the needy,
to praise you with with our voices
and the witness of our lives.
To you, O God, be the glory
forever and ever. Amen
St. Patrick, pray for us
