DIOCESAN WEEKLY BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENTS, SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2017, 23RD SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME

We pray as a diocesan family for all Christians during this year marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. May we learn to dialogue and always work from a perspective of unity, so that our common witness as Christians might be strengthened. We pray to the Lord.

 

  1. May the desire to consume be replaced by contentment with what is adequate and the wisdom to use our resources for the health of the earth. We pray to the Lord.

 

  1. Through the People of God gathered here, provide the human family with their daily bread. We pray to the Lord.

PRAYER FOR A NEW BISHOP

Praise to you, Lord our God, our eternal shepherd and guide.

In your faithfulness, grant to the Diocese of Saskatoon

a shepherd whose watchful care and kindly zeal

will continue the good work of his predecessors.

In your love for us, give us a shepherd who will lead us

in being Christ’s heart of mercy, voice of hope, and hands of justice.

May our new bishop fill our minds and hearts

with the truth of the Gospel, the power of the sacraments,

and the desire to build up your holy Church.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
