Lord God, as a sign of your steadfast love,
in a world hardened by sin,
grant us land where we may build
a visible sign of your presence in our community.
Drawn together in Christ by the Spirit,
bless our efforts as we seek to raise up a place
worthy of your Holy Presence where
our growing Catholic family may joyfully celebrate.
Send forth Your Spirit of unity and generosity
that the task of building upon this land
will draw us together in praise of your name.
Empower us to be a community of love
even as we wait in confidence,
growing in your likeness by the grace of your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
