Official Institute Prayer Released
The official prayer of The Leadership Institute has been promulgated by Bishop Frank Caggiano and will be distributed for the first time at the Institute’s launch on Wednesday, January 11, 2017.
A collaborative effort among theologians, diocesan leaders, and supporters of the Institute, the prayer asks for God to bless our studies, our leaders, and our shared work, all the while invoking the three main components of all that the Institute seeks to accomplish: encounter, formation, and discipleship.
Copies of the prayer can be downloaded here.
Together, let us pray for the success of the ministry we share:
God of Wisdom and Love,
You have called us to be missionary disciples of your Son,
and to use our gifts to build up His Body, the Church.
Empower us to follow the example of the twelve apostles
and to spread the Good News to the ends of the earth.
May we Encounter You in all our studies,
May our Formation be guided by Your Holy Spirit,
And may the Discipleship in which we share transform us
So that our ministry may renew the world
One person at a time.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
