People of God

Your role is critical to achieving our Vision! The most basic way to start Courageously Living the Gospel is to joyfully proclaim the Good News, welcome and accompany others and help everyone to encounter the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.

We also ask for your prayers!  Let us humbly ask for the Holy Spirit’s strength and support so that the Diocese of St. Petersburg can be united in our mission to proclaim the Gospel, to invite others to join us in faith and to an encounter with Christ that is truly life-changing.

Courageously Living the Gospel Prayer

Almighty, ever-living God, by our baptism, we have been called to live as missionary disciples of your Son, Jesus Christ.

Grant that we, your people of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, will fulfill our purpose by proclaiming the Good News and inviting all people to experience the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.

Deepen our trust in you, O Lord, and help us to remain steadfast in our commitment to Courageously Living the Gospel in our homes, neighborhoods, parish communities, and wherever you may lead us.

Together, with the intercession of our Blessed Mother and all the saints who have gone before us, we humbly ask for the courage to live as your disciples standing firm in our Catholic faith, through your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen.
