Blessed are You, Lord God of all creation,
In Your goodness You have created us,
In Your mercy You have redeemed us,
And in Your every loving Wisdom
You sustain us with your Spirit.
You have given us the gift of faith,
the gift of Saint Mary’s community,
and the gift of Your call to be Your disciples.
We beg You now for the gifts of:
Enlightenment
that through our PRAYER we may know Your holy and true command;
Discipleship
that we may SERVE the needs of the community and not simply our own; and,
Gratitude
that we may give of ourselves for the good of all.
May we discover what is ours to do and 
may we do good works each day for the sake of Your Kingdom. Amen.
