Eternal Father,
through the resurrection of Jesus
the good news of Your love has touched the world.
By our baptism we are reborn as your Children of Light.
Through the work of Your Spirit
the glory of Your new creation continues to unfold.

Watch over Your family of faith
in the Archdiocese of Regina.
Inspire us by the prompting of Your Spirit:
that our elders may dream new dreams
and our youth may find wisdom in visions.
Give us a courageous heart,
a bold voice and openness of mind,
and above all else, ears that listen.

Help us, as Your family,
to discover Your way:
story telling and dialogue which leads to understanding;
ideas which challenge growth;
a journey which will bring hope.

We offer you this prayer
for you are our life, our strength and guide,
Our loving God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

O Lord, You who steadied the hand of Peter as he began to sink on the stormy sea, if you are with me, no one is against. Grant the shield of faith and the mighty armor of the Holy Spirit to protect and guide to do Your will. The future of your faithful is put into Your hands, O Lord, and I follow You to a life in Christ. Amen
