St. Charles Borromeo Prayer

Heavenly Father,

You have reminded us:
"Unless the LORD build the house,
they labor in vain who build."

Joining our hands and hearts
to Your holy will,
we ask You to bless us
with that same spirit that filled our patron.
Saint Charles Borromeo, so that
our parish may be constantly renewed
and continually conformed
to the likeness of Christ.

Guide us by the light of the Holy Spirit
as we discern how You are calling us
To grow as a parish.
Give us that same determination
which made Saint Charles
faithful in ministry and fervent in charity,
all for the praise and glory of Your Name.

Through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
