Together Let Us Go Forth ~ Juntos Sigamos Adelante Campaign
Eternal Father, through your Beloved Son Jesus and the intercession of Our Lady of the Lake, pour out your Holy Spirit on our Campaign.
You have blessed Our Lady of the Lake Parish abundantly. Thank you for all those who came before us to provide our beautiful church and campus. May the gifts and labor we now offer begin in your mercy and be brought to completion by your saving help.
Open our minds to your thoughts.
Open our hearts to your generosity.
Open our hands to the work you have prepared for us, so that we may hand on with increase that which we received from the faithful hands of others.
We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
