JP2 Parish Strategic Plan Prayer

Heavenly Father, we pray through the intercession of Saint John Paul II, 
for the grace to go forward with hope as we work in service with one another 
for your holy church through this strategic planning process. 
We pray for a generous heart for all who take part in this process, 
that we may become instruments of your work and do your holy will, 
to renew and grow your Church in our community, Amen.
