Dear God, through Jesus Christ you brought the Holy Spirit to the glorious Apostles. We, descendants in Faith, inherit the work that they started in Jerusalem. We also build upon what St. Edward the Confessor achieved these thousand years ago.
Now in the New World, in our parish named after St. Edward, infuse us with your Holy Spirit. Lead us as we discern the way as a search committee gathered in your name, on behalf of our faith community. Make us faithful and effective stewards of this opportunity to grow the Church.
In great gladness we pray.
