“There is a variety of gifts, but always the same Spirit; there is much service to be done, but always to the same Lord; different people working together in different ways , it is the same God who is working in all of them. The particular way in which the Spirit is given to each person is for a good purpose. One may have the gift of preaching with wisdom given him by the Spirit; and another the gift of faith given by the same Spirit; another again the gift of healing, through this one Spirit; one, the power of miracles; another, prophecy; another the gift of recognizing spirits; another the gift of tongues and another the ability to interpret them. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, who distributes different gifts to different people just as He chooses.” 1 Cor 12:4 – 11

Loving God,
we ask you to bless our parish
and the life we share together.
Help us to work with one another
sharing our gifts and talents
to make our family grow in faith, love,
and service.
Help us to play together joyfully,
giving of our time and of ourselves
to support and care for other families.
Help us to love one another,
and always to be eager to show that love.
In joys and in sorrows,
in good times and bad,
may we give strength to one another.
May the example of the Holy Family inspire us,
that we might respect one another’s dignity
in all our daily relationships.
May we all share in the everlasting happiness
of your heavenly family. Amen.
