The people of the Diocese are invited to pray this prayer –
O Christ, you called your Church
to bear your love and grace to the world
but we have failed.
We failed to care for your children and vulnerable ones.
We failed to show compassion and confront evil.
O Christ, we turn to you
in whom the fullness of life is found
we renounce evil;
we claim your love.
We choose to be made whole. Amen.
