Local Stewardship

Speak and work for change in the common good of our community.

Local symbolJanuary/February



Let us pray to God…
For the community we live and work in,
For all the people in it who are lonely,
For those whose voices are never heard,
For those who find no friends,
For the people in our city who are homeless and without shelter,
For those who are disheartened,
And for those who feel betrayed.

Let us ask the Lord for forgiveness…
For the suffering we cause others,
For our forgetfulness and neglect of others,
For our lack of understanding of each other,
For speaking ill of others,
And for the inability to forgive others.

Let us ask God for the grace…
To break down barriers among people,
To create bridges between communities,
To work toward equality and justice for all,
To promote peace,
To advocate for those who have no voice,
And to embrace our brothers and sisters.
