We your Church
of the Archdiocese
look forward with joy and anticipation
to the celebration of the Great Jubilee
that marks your birth 2000 years ago.
Hear our prayer
and send forth your Spirit
during this time
so that we might become a Church
that is reconciling and forgiving,
faithful to your teachings,
full of faith, hope
is just and seeks justice,
is alive to the needs of others
is living out it's call
to proclaim the Good
so that all peoples
may come to know you
as their Lord
May we your Church,
with the help of Mary
become a true sacrament to the world.
Jesus, we ask this in your name,
Our Lord, yesterday, today and forever.
