The following prayer was adjusted from the Diocese of Austin on 06/13/2017 to be used at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Evansville, IN:
Father, you have given us your Son, Jesus Christ to teach, sanctify and govern your people. You also gave us the gift of your Holy Spirit so that we may forever remain One in your name.
We thank you for our past bishops who have served the Church of Southwestern Indiana.
Father, we ask that you look with favor upon those in our church, who will prayerfully select our new bishop. Give them a Spirit of wisdom and counsel that they may discern your will.
We ask in the name of your Son, that you bless our future bishop. Provide him with the gifts he will need to carry on the ministry of Jesus in our Diocese of Evansville.
Grant him the heart of your Son, the heart of the Good Shepherd. Bestow upon him the zeal of St. Paul in preaching the Good News; the humility of St. John Vianney in ministering the sacraments; the compassion of St. Vincent DePaul in serving those most in need; and the wisdom of St. Augustine in teaching the doctrine of our church.
We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of God, patroness of our diocese. Amen.

Please pray for our Good Shepherd Catholic Parish Summer Social: may God bless us with beautiful weather, a great response from our workers, parishioners and whole community of faith. May our hospitality be experienced by all guests as more than a superficial smile or warm reception, but more importantly as Christ's genuine acceptance and love for all people.
