Loving Father, Creator of the universe,
You call your people to worship and
to be with You and with one another at Mass.
We thank you for having called us to assist
others in their prayers to you and to serve you
at your Holy Altar.
Cleanse our hearts from all evil and distracting
thoughts. Guide us with Your Spirit that in all
righteousness, we may be worthy of the trust
placed in us and through our examples, our
presence and service bring others closer to
In Jesus’ name we pray: Amen.
