Loving God,
true source of inspiration and hope,
bless us on our pilgrimage of faith
as the Diocesan family of St. Petersburg.
Deepen our love and commitment to
your Son Jesus Christ in whose mission we share.
May we continue to be nourished by His Word
and transformed by the gift of His body and blood in the Eucharist.
Let Christ’s presence shine through our lives
and by the power of the Holy Spirit
send us into the world as instruments of mercy and justice.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,
