This year, our community will focus on evangelization. Bringing the Good News of God's love and plan for each one of us to our family, friends and co-workers.
Every Christian is called to share Christ with others in both word and deed. As Pope St. Paul VI reminds us "Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses." This year, St. Lawrence will focus on growing in our faith and more willingly sharing it with others.
Prayer for Year of Evangelization
Most Loving and Gracious Father,
We pray that with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit,
we will hear the call of discipleship.
We pray that by our lives lived out in faith, we would effectively Evangelize and bring people to a personal relationship with your son, Jesus.
We ask you Holy Spirit to fill our hearts and renew our Parish with the fire of your love.
Inspire us at Saint Lawrence to always be a place of joy and hope. A people who welcomes the stranger and searches out the lost.
We humbly ask this through Christ our Lord.
