Loving God, You speak to us
and nourish us through the
life of this church community.
Lord, we ask you
to send your Spirit to us so that
men and women among us, young and old, will respond to your call to
service and leadership in the Church.
We pray, especially, in our day, for
those who hear your invitation to
be a priest, sister, brother, or deacon.
May those who are opening their hearts
and minds to your call be encouraged
and strengthened through our enthusiasm
in your service.
