Heavenly Father,

Your loving providence accompanies us on our life's journey.

Thank you for the many gifts you have given us.

We ask that you continue to call sons and daughters from our families and parishes to serve as priests, deacons and consecrated men and women in the Diocese of Greensburg.

Send your Spirit upon us so that many will respond with great love to your call to service and leadership in your Church.

Give to those you have chosen the faith of the apostle, the vision of the prophet and the courage of the martyr.

Through the intercession of the Diocesan patroness, Our Lady of the Assumption, help us to be faithful disciples of your Son by following the example of Mary.

Make us generous in sharing ourselves and our talents for the sake of your Kingdom on earth.

We ask this through Christ the risen Lord.
