Dear Heavenly Father,

My parish is composed of people like me;
I help make it what it is.

It will be friendly, if I am.
Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.
It will do great work, if I work.
It will be prayerful, if I pray.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.
It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship, if I invite and bring them.

It will be a parish of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith,
and a parish with a noble spirit,
if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same things.

Therefore, with Your help,
O God,
I shall dedicate myself
to the task of being all things that I want my parish to be.
Amen.
