Send forth your Spirit, Lord,
into the hearts of your faithful people,
that they may be conscious of their vocation
to holiness and service to others.
Grant that many of them may dedicate themselves
to You through lay ministries.
We pray especially for the needs of our own parish and Diocese.
Grant that we may always have sufficient good and holy, committed lay ministers to serve our communities.
We make this prayer through Jesus Christ
Our Lord and Redeemer
