A Prayer for our parish

O God, sustain us, your disciples at Holy Cross, as we face new tasks, in the challenges of a demanding and complicated world. By your Holy Spirit, bless us with sound judgment and the courage to persevere, so that we may boldly bear your Cross. And make us, we pray, faithful servants of your promised kingdom, through Jesus Christ our blessed Savior. Amen.
