Prayer for our Parish

Almighty God, Source of all Grace,
You created us; we praise You
You redeem us; we adore You
You sanctify us; we glorify You
Almighty God,
Confident of your love for us, we ask You through the intercession of our Patron St. Martin De Porres to prosper the work of our hands and the prayers of our hearts as we labor in these years leading up to our Golden Anniversary.  Please aid us in creating a parish of spirited worship and loving service, a parish of peace and hope.
We ask this as we ask for all good things;
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen
