Oh God, in this our 40th Anniversary Year,
we lift up to You our Prayers
for our Parishioners and Community.
Lord, You have gathered us together
from all parts of the World
to Honor the Past,
Celebrate the Present,
and Prepare for the Future.
We give thanks as we Honor all those
who in the Past contributed to the life of
Saint Francis of Assisi Church.
We give thanks as we joyfully
Celebrate the Present with all our Parish Ministry.
We give thanks as we Prepare for the Future
by Building up Your Church.
With the intercession of Mary, Our Mother,
and Saint Francis of Assisi, Our Patron, we pray through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
