PRAYER FOR THE YEAR OF CONSECRATED LIFE
O God, throughout the ages you have called women and
men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the
evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience.
During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks
for these courageous witnesses of Faith and models of
inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make
a more perfect offering of ourselves to you. Continue to
enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters
who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the
Kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in
the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Happy New Year
Holy Spirit Faith Formation would like to wish all
Families, Catechists & Students
