Why Catholic?................................A Disciple’s Prayer………………………………………….


Loving God and Father,                                                                                   Let our hearts burn within us

help us to be people of prayer,                                                                         as we catch glimpses of your heart in Jesus,

committed to the person and message of Jesus your Son.                               For through him, we know your loving plan for us.


Help us to grasp the integrity and beauty                                                        We ask this through Jesus the Christ who lives

of the truths of our faith and                                                                            with you and the Holy Spirit 

the transforming power of your grace.                                                             in one loving Trinity.  Amen


Nourish and strengthen us as people of faith,

disciples of Jesus, committed to the mission of the Church

and eager to share the gospel without restraint.
