Prayer for the Diocese


God our Father, in all the churches scattered throughout the world you show forth the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. Through the Gospel and the Eucharist bring your people of the Diocese of Wollongong together in the Holy Spirit and guide us in your love.

We acknowledge with deep gratitude your abundant blessings bestowed on this Diocese and its people over the past sixty years. Inspire us today to build on the work of the faithful who have gone before us. Give us courage to embrace our Diocesan Pastoral Plan and be conscious of our baptismal responsibility to be bearers of God’s love and embody the hope of the Gospel. Through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
