Almighty, ever-living God,
In your goodness, you sent your only Son
to bring salvation to all people through your Church.
For seventy-five years
your sons and daughters in the Diocese of Evansville
have strived to live as a community of faith, hope and charity,
rooted in Christ.
Pour forth your Holy Spirit on this local Church,
that we may continue the saving work of Jesus Christ
through Word, Sacrament, and Service.
May everything we do,
both now and in the years to come,
be for your glory and for the sanctification of all.
We ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ,
who is Lord yesterday, today and forever. Amen
Holy Mary, Mother of God – Pray for us.
