God our Father,
In Baptism You called us by name making us members of Your people, the church.
We praise You for Your goodness,
We thank You for Your gifts,
We ask You to strengthen us
to live in love and service to others after the example of Your Son, Jesus.
Father, look upon Your Church with love and bless Your people with dedicated priests, sisters, deacons, and brothers. Help us to see our vocations as we journey towards You.
You have called us, not to set us apart,
but to bring us together with others who need Your love.
Make us faithful signs of Your presence in their midst.
We ask You this through Christ,
