SAVING LIVES, CHANGING LIVES
Ashley was desperate. Twenty-one years old and two months pregnant, she had just dropped out of college. Her father was urging her to get an abortion. He believed having a baby now would ruin her life.
Then she saw a Catholic Charities flyer. It turned out to be a lifeline.
Bishop David Zubik’s Prayer for The
Father in heaven,
We, the Church of Pittsburgh,
praise You for the gift of your Son.
As a people who follow in His footsteps,
we pray for the grace
to embrace His mission, share His love
and Proclaim the gospel with courage.
We thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit
Who remains with us always.
We commit ourselves to all we do with your many gifts,
not done for ourselves,
but for You and for one another.
Help us, Lord, to be your Church Alive!
by living, sharing, praying as one people
In Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Greene,
Lawrence and Washington counties.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit,
grant our prayer as we offer it to You
in the Name of your Son Jesus,
and with the help of our Blessed Mother,
who protects us under the mantle of her garment.
Hear us. Guide us. Renew us.
Now, and forever,
