Core Values Prayer
Lord God, pour out your gifts upon us
that we might live the core values
integral to our mission at
St. Thomas More Newman Center.
Help us to always proclaim the Gospel of Your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ, by the witness of our lives.
We pray to be nourished in the richness of
sacramental life and Catholic liturgy
— so that in celebrating the mystery of our faith, we are sent forth as the Body of Christ into the world.
We pray to be a welcoming community
— so we might honor your presence in every person we encounter, making all feel welcome in our Church.
We pray to be a people of service
— so we would always reach out in charity, justice and mercy.
We pray to be committed to lifelong faith formation
— so we can be open to ongoing evangelization and conversion, and grow in the Church’s wisdom.
We pray to be ever mindful of our call to stewardship
— so that in response to your Word, we would share our time, talent and treasure.
We pray to be intentional in forming servant leaders
— so we might raise up current and future leaders for the Church and society.
Inspire us, bless us and guide us in your love,
+ Father, Son and Holy Spirit. AMEN.
