Prayer of St. Jerome Community

My church is composed of people like me. I help make it what it is.

It will be friendly, if  I am.

Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.

It will do great work, if I work

It will make generous gifts to many causes, if l am a generous giver.

It will bring other people into its worship and fellowship, if I invite and bring them in.

It will be a Church of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, and a Church with a noble spirit. if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same qualities.

Therefore, with the help of God, I shall dedicate myself to the task of being all things that I want my Church to be.

Bless my journey, Lord God. that I might build the Church

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
