2018 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Prayer
we ask You to look kindly upon our Archdiocesan family of faith.
Help us to be witnesses to faith, hope and love
for all our brothers and sisters without exception.
God of love and mercy,
You call us to be followers of Your Son, Jesus Christ, in word and in deed.
He gave of Himself, not only on the Cross, but at every moment of His life:
When He saw the hungry; He fed them.
When He saw the thirsty; He gave them drink.
When He saw the sick; He healed them.
When He saw the downtrodden; He gave them hope.
When He saw the dying; He gave them life.
Through these signs Jesus called everyone to believe in Him,
so that through faith they might have eternal life in His name.
empower us with the Holy Spirit to continue Christ’s mission in our day
May this year’s Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, Our Faith, Our Future,
revitalize us as a church community,
and help us to be true servants of the good news of salvation.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
