Our Small Groups will begin their faith sharing meetings this weekend, engaging and discovering from the program materials how to “Change Our Hearts.”  What a blessing for all of the individuals who have joined our Lenten Season II, and for our larger Parish community as we continue to “Unite in the Body of Christ” and “Grow Together in Discipleship.”

Gracious God and Father, we enter into your presence realizing you know us better than we know ourselves.  You know the cares and sufferings we carry in our hearts.

You call us to holiness and we trust you to lead us together on our journey to be a renewed Church, for with you all things are possible.

Create us anew in Jesus Christ your Son.   Liberate us from all that keeps us from you.  Heal us from every form of sin and violence.

Transform us to live your Word more profoundly.  Awaken us to the sacred; rebuild trust among us.  Enliven our parishes; reunite our families.

May your Holy Spirit empower us to live as a community of love, freed to share in your work of recreating our world and restoring justice.

We believe you are doing something new, calling us to arise together in Christ to celebrate the fullness of life.  Amen

THANK YOU SMALL GROUPS HOSTS, FACILITATORS, AND PARTICIPANTS FOR BECOMING OUR PARISH ARISE Together in Christ™ Family!  May your time journey be blessed by the Holy Spirit and many graces.
