Pastoral Council 2019
Lord, by Your grace You fashion us into a family of faith. Help us to work together in love, growing deeper in our knowledge of the Catholic Faith and our commitment to share it with others. Inspire in us words and actions that reach out to all men and women as an invitation to Faith in Jesus Christ. Give us strength to live joyfully the Christian way of life as vibrant witnesses to mercy and justice to all our brothers and sisters here at the Cathedral Parish and in the greater Harrisburg community. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Advise the pastor on proper financial stewardship
Almighty God, I give thanks for all that I have and all that I am.
Most of all, I give thanks for the great gift of Your Son, Jesus.
I pray that through a personal relationship with the Risen Christ,
My heart will be open to continued conversion in my life.
I pray that I may be a good steward:
that I will follow faithfully, serve joyfully, give generously, live responsibly,
and possess sensibly.
In gratitude for the abundant gifts, You have so preciously given to me,
I return to You the first fruits of these gifts, through acts of service and
by generously sharing all that You have entrusted to me.
Heavenly Father, by Your Holy Spirit, help me to be a gift to others,
in Your name. Amen.
