Eternal rest unto them, O Lord
This spring, let us pray for all those in our families who have died.
For the respose of the souls of the children and adults who have died by gun violence, and for the consolation of their families and friends.
For all those who have perished in the ffighting in Ukraine, Israel, and Sudan, Lord, have mercy.

Almighty God,

My parish is composed of people like me.  I help to make it what it is.
    It will be friendly if I am friendly.
Its pews will be filled, if I help to fill them.
    My parish will do great work, if I work with my parish.
It will make generous gifts to many just causes,
     if I am a generous giver.
It will welcome other people to our worship and fellowship
    if I invite and welcome them.
It will be a Church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith,
    and a Church with a noble spirit, if I am filled with these same qualities.
Therefore, with the help of God, I shall dedicate myself to the task
    of being all the things that I want my parish to be.
Bless our journey together, Lord God,
    that we might build the Church through Jesus Christ our Lord,  Amen.
