Prayer for Vocations
We celebrate your fidelity and love for your Church. You bless us and call us into a covenant with you, with Jesus, and with the Holy Spirit. Mary accepted this covenant, offering herself as your blessed handmaid. You entrusted her with your Son, Jesus, and in turn she became our mother too. Like Jesus and Mary, bless us with a trusting spirit that we might serve you faithfully. Inspire men and women to dedicate their lives to you through the consecrated life. Help us to invite, encourage and support men and women to serve the Church. Blessed are we as we seek to live our lives in holiness and integrity. We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus and his Blessed Mother in union with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Prayer for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal
Loving Father, your boundless love sustains and nourishes Your family of faith in the Diocese of Dallas. As a community of believers, we understand that as our Lord secured our redemption in His physical body, so too does His suffering continue in the members of His mystical body, the Church. We pray, as members of the Body of Christ, that we are blessed with a spirit of generosity in our support of the Bishop’s Appeal for Catholic Ministries and that through such generosity, we may sustain the healing and redemptive work of our Church. We ask this, as we ask all things, through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Bishop’s Annual Appeal
for Catholic Ministries
Next weekend, Catholics in the Diocese of Dallas will join together in generous support of the 2015 Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries. The success of this campaign is essential for the continued health of the ministries served.
We ask that each family in our faith community join in support of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries. During this week, we ask you to reflect upon this call for support. We ask you to consider what contributing to this appeal really means – your support of this appeal ensures that our schools and our religious education programs remain vital sources of learning and support for the young people who will one day lead our Church. It ensures that the profound needs of the sick, the troubled and elderly are continuously met. It ensures continuous and essential training for all those who are called to ministry within our diocese. And, it ensures that your diocese remains a vital, faith-driven community. Each family will be asked to make a commitment to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries by completing a special appeal pledge envelope next weekend.
We simply ask that you take this week to prayerfully consider the commitment amount that you will make next week.
