Father of Mercy, as we journey On Mission for The Church Alive!, endow us with your gifts of collaboration, courage and compassion. Help us to fulfill the mission of Jesus and His Church through vibrant parishes, and effective ministries. Raise up selfless, energetic leaders to serve the Church in fidelity and with care. May we, the Church of Pittsburgh in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Greene, Lawrence and Washington Counties be sustained and strengthened by your grace. Help us to learn Jesus, to love Jesus and to live Jesus. Hear this prayer and grant it through Jesus Christ our Lord, with the help of our dear Blessed Mother, under the mantle of her love. Amen. ON MISSION FOR THE CHURCH ALIVE! Will help us envision how our parishes, schools and minis-tries can best respond to the changing land-scape of our communities so they can be vital centers of worship and service. Since 2000, Mass attendance across the diocese has fallen 40 percent, half our parishes are running operational deficits, and pending retirements will mean far fewer priests will be available in the future to serve Gods people. But the possi-bilities and opportunities are endless! Learn how to get in-volved at a Summer Session, 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Thurs-day, July 21 at St. Paul Cathedral in Oakland with Bishop David Zubik.
