Family Prayer for the Gifts

of the Holy Spirit

Pope Francis has asked that we pray that the Holy Spirit guide the synodal process as the Church prepared for a World Synod, a gathering of the Church, in 2023. Archbishop Etiennen has asked us to pray as the Archdiocese develops a Pastoral Plan.

You are welcome to pick up one or more copies of the Family Prayer folder in the entrance way to Church and as a family to pray that the Holy Spirit inspire us with his gifts.


We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name. With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts; Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it. We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder. Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions. Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right. All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever. Amen.

Pastoral Plan Activities and Prayer

October 17

Please read the Gospel for this Sunday Mark 10:35-45.

In the Gospel Jesus teaches the disciples that to follow him that are to act as servants to all. They have a difficult time understanding and accepting what Jesus is asking of them. It is not until they see Jesus giving his life in loving generosity on the cross and the new life of his resurrection that they begin to understand. We, too, find generous service to all difficult to accept and put into practice

Dialogue: What are some of the crosses you as a family face (financial worries, sickness, care of relatives, job or school issues, others)? How do you handle the multiple demands and expectations, the corona virus restrictions, etc. placed on you?

Activity: How can each family member support (serve) each other when the crosses weigh heavily? Make a list of the crosses, difficulties, frustrations etc. that you and the family face? Write them down and place them before an image of the Lord, or behind a crucifix and ask the Lord to strengthen you and the family. Before coming to Mass, ask each member to pray asking God’s blessing and strength as you or the family try to serve and help each other or a member who faces some particular difficulties
