Lord Jesus Christ, I surrender my life to you. Be the center of my life. Make me holy. Help me to love You with all of my heart, mind, and strength, and to love others as You love me. Help me to experience your nativity in my heart each day, to come to know you in a personal way, and to be your disciple. Pour out your Holy Spirit upon me and upon all parishioners of Nativity of the Lord Parish. Make our parish ever more a family of love. Increase our desire to serve others, especially the poor, through the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. Empower us to evangelize by speaking about your love, so that many others may become your disciples. Protect our parish from the spirit of division and from any other plans of the devil. Mary, Star of Evangelization, and St. Joseph, pray for us. Amen!
Our mission is to do what Jesus commissions every Catholic to do: “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mt 28:19-20)
