of yourpresence in our world today.Strengthen our diocese, our parishes,
our bishop, priests, deacons, religious and laypeople.Help us always to know your will.

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”

with generosity and self-sacrificing love.Remove their fears

you would entrust to them
a role so great and necessary
in your plan of salvation.

Help us to know your voice and to respond generously.

their lives in the service of your Church.Bless those who today are following that call.

will first be learned in the home.Through the intercession of Mary,
whose "yes" brought your Son into the world,

Amen.Nicene CreedI believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of theFather before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again onthe third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through...
