Prayer for the Mission Alignment Process

 

Dear Father in heaven,
look kindly upon the Diocese of Oakland
as we take stock of the
many gifts you have given us.

Send your Holy Spirit
to inspire and guide us
so that our efforts to
proclaim the saving gospel
of our Lord Jesus Christ more effectively,
may bear tremendous fruit.

May we, 
as your people,
courageously proceed on this
path of self-reflection and renewal.
In the end,
with your divine assistance,
we know that we cannot fail.

Holy Mary,
Queen of the World and
St. Francis de Sales,
co-patrons of our Diocese,
pray for us!
Amen
