You have called us to be the first community in the United States to be dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We thank you for that birthright and ask you to strengthen the faith that our ancestors have instilled in us.
Let us be stewards of our traditions and keep them alive through future generations. Place our weak hearts into your Son’s Divine Sacred Heart.
Challenge us to recognize and nurture all of the gifts that you have bestowed upon us, so that we may be true and vibrant witnesses of your good news.
We ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit now and forever.
