Weekly Bulletin - Join us in praying for our new bishop!
Happy last week of February!
This past weekend we prayed a special prayer for the Lord to send us the new bishop we need and sent prayer cards home with everyone. There are more in the kiosks at both St. Patrick and Holy Redeemer if you did not get one yet! The prayer is also below for you to include in your own prayers. Check out Msgr. Holmes' bulletin letter for more information on how a new bishop is chosen for a diocese!
you fill heaven and earth with your glory, yet you are near to all who call upon you.
Grant our diocese a new bishop who, in your grace, is a Shepherd after your own heart:
one who is filled with zeal for the Faith and the spread of the Gospel,
who is gentle and wise, merciful and just, and devoted in love for your people.
May he strive each day to be configured to your Son, Jesus Christ,
and unite your people to become stronger in faith, more earnest in our love of you, and generous with our care for others.
Grant your people the grace to accept our new bishop as your own,
and may he lead us toward your Son, the unfailing light,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Saint Raphael, patron of our Diocese,
pray for us.
