Parish Mission Statement
We are a Catholic faith community in the Benedictine tradition.
We welcome Jesus Christ and build His kingdom
as we believe, celebrate, and live the mystery of God’s love.
Genesis 1:31a God looked at everything he had made, and found it very good.
Lord God, made in your image, we rejoice at your goodness. Bring us peace, awaken respect for human life, and scatter bigotry from among us. Teach us to welcome your Son in one another and bless our new bishop in his service. Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Exodus 3:2b When Moses looked, although the bush was on fire, it was not being consumed.
Loving Father, send your Spirit to melt frozen hearts and warm the chill of estrangement and harsh judgment. Awaken within all St. Benedict parishioners great desire for renewal. Help us go into the desert to fast and pray and find the way, who is your Son. Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Exodus 16:4a Then the Lord said to Moses: I am going to rain down bread from heaven for you.
O Maker of Every Good Gift, sustain us during these days of fasting and prayer. Teach all the members of St. Benedict Cathedral to find the fulfillment of all our hopes in you. Awaken in us the desire to do your will. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Mark 16:6 He said to them, “Do not be amazed! You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him.”
Heavenly Father, shine the light of the resurrection upon all who dwell in darkness. Raise us from the death of apathy and fear. Awaken in your people at St. Ben’s lively gratitude to be generous stewards. Help us welcome all our newest brothers and sisters. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Luke 1:30 Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
Father of Every Nation, hear your Mother’s prayers for us. Free us from death. Pour out the gifts of your Spirit upon St. Benedict Cathedral and inspire us to be one in you. Keep our young parishioners safe and faithful throughout the summer. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Matthew 25:20b Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five more.
O God of All the Living, conform our beloved St. Benedict Cathedral to the Body of Christ. Help us love you and love one another each day. Stir within us a renewed desire to hear the cry of the poor and to answer their needs. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
