God our Father, through the intercession of Saint Barbara,
we offer these prayers to you for our parish and your people.
O Holy Spirit, guide us as we strive to become a faith-filled and life-giving community, seeking always to do your will as we help each other journey to your heavenly kingdom.
We desire to be a people that responds to your call to help our brothers and sisters in Christ, nurturing the bond that we share as children of God. Together with the Universal Church, may our parish family grow in unity and be faithful disciples, proclaiming the good news of the Lord and living the Word of God.
Jesus, our Good Shepherd, lead us to the pasture of compassion, service, and love, that all may come to know your goodness and share in the eternal feast you have prepared for each of us. May Mary, Mother of the Church, Bearer of Truth and Light, and Help of Christians, pray for us and be a source of strength to us as we sojourn towards the Kingdom of God.
We ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son. Amen.
