“A Journey Together in Building Our Faith” -
Capital Campaign Prayer

Father in Heaven; You have blessed us with St. Lawrence
Church and with our time, talent, and treasure since You are
the giver of all good gifts. Guide us always to use wisely these
gifts You have entrusted to our care for the growth of Your
Kingdom here on earth. Open our hearts to receive Your Spirit
of love and generosity.

Bless us as we pledge and show You our gratitude by sacrificing
our time, talent, and treasure to renovate St. Lawrence Church
where we come to worship You on A Journey Together In
Building Our Faith.

Father, nothing is built, renovated, or valued without You
being involved in the process. Please guide us, bless us and
grace us. May we first seek always Your Kingdom above all
things. May we strengthen and beautify Your Church and pass
on our heritage of faith to future generations.

May the intercession of Mary our Blessed Mother and that of
our patron, St. Lawrence, help us in this noble cause. We pray
all this through Jesus Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with
You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
Amen.
