On July 1, 2014 the parishes of St John the Evangelist, St Joseph and St Norbert merged and formed the new faith community of St Jude Thaddeus Parish. All are welcome in this place to live their baptismal promise, worship together in community and serve the Lord.
Gracious and Loving God,
We gather in your name as stewards of this hour: To reflect, learn, give, and receive.
This time belongs to you, entrusted to us to shine Christ’s light on whomever we encounter; among our family and friends, colleagues and strangers; in our church, or in a world desperate for your presence.
Teach us to use this time prayerfully, with prudence, and with hearts that listen for the promptings of your Spirit.
May we return this hour to you with a fruitful account of our stewardship,
hopeful you will find us trustworthy in the small matters, so we may be entrusted with even greater ones.
We ask this through Christ Jesus, Our Lord, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
