Almighty Father, we thank you for calling us to live together as the family of St. Anne Catholic Church. Generations ago you lit the fire of faith through a mission to the children of immigrants in a small stone church. Lord Jesus, we ask you to help us to follow you and humbly serve you by welcoming and serving those most in need of your love. Fill us with your Holy Spirit and light our path. Keep us attentive to your word in the Scriptures and help us to recognize Christ in the breaking of the bread. May the lives we lead be our offering of love to you. We make our prayer in unity with all the Saints, especially through the intercession of St. Anne the grandmother of Jesus. Amen.
