John Trudeau composed this lovely prayer for the opening of one of our Capital Campaign meetings.

In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen

Loving God, we are gathered this evening to discuss and plan for the   future of our beloved St Vincent De Paul parish. Please rain down your grace on us as we work together to serve you, O God, and to grow our parish community spiritually.

Further, We ask that the Holy Spirit inspire in each of us the desire to  listen  carefully, to speak wisely and to join our hearts and souls to reach our common goals of serving you and our neighbors.

We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
