St. Charles Borromeo Prayer

Heavenly Father,

With the psalmist we proclaim, “Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build.”

Joining hand and heart to build St. Charles Borromeo Church, we ask you to bless and sanctify our labor. Help us to mold our parish into a community that manifests the love of Christ to all people. As we set stone upon sacred stone, fashion for us and for our children a lasting monument to our faith, our dreams, our labor, and our love.

With gratitude for the indwelling presence of your Holy Spirit, we invoke our patron, St. Charles Borromeo, who exhorted us to pray before, during and after all things we do.

To God be the glory, in His Church and in Christ Jesus, for all generations!
