Parish Transition Prayer
God, giver of every good gift, look graciously on Our Lady of Charity parish and guide us during our time of transition. We pray we will be saying “Welcome” to a new Pastor soon 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 and Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen
