Our dedication prayer:
Father of Mercy, in St. Damien you have given a shining witness of love for the poorest and most abandoned. Grant that, by his intercesssion, as faithful witnessof the heart of your Son Jesus, we too may be servants of the most needy and rejected. Teach us to live our lives with joy like yours and to celebrate and to contemplate the Eucharist so we might be good disciples of Jesus and Mary. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
