Parish Transition Prayer
God, giver of every good gift, look graciously on our parish, Our Lady of Charity, and guide us during our time of transition. We are dealing with the unexpected reassignment of our Pastor and friend, Fr. Bryan, and although our hearts are torn between grief and well wishes for him, we are grateful to you for his 4.5 years with us. We will be saying “Welcome” to a now unknown new Pastor and ask that you bless our parish with a Priest whose presence will be a grace both for him and for us. We are filled with faith, energized by the power of your love and united in the mission entrusted to us. We need your grace to be receptive to this change and view it as an invitation to conversion and growth. We pray this in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, and Our Lord. Amen
