175th Anniversary Mass

Jubilee Prayer

Generous and merciful Father, we give you thanks for 175 years of grace and blessings upon our local Church.

From Vincennes to Indianapolis, You gather a people to praise Youand manifest Your presence in the world—faithful women and men of generations past, present and yet to follow.

In this year of Jubilee, we ask You to touch our hearts anew with the love of Your Son, Jesus Christ, enlighten our minds with Your Holy Spirit and strengthen our hands for service.

Through the intercession of Mary, Mother of God, St. Joseph, patron of the Universal Church, and our own patrons, St. Francis Xavier and St. Theodora Guérin, hear our prayers* and aid us on our journey to the Kingdom where You live and reign Father, Son and Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever.


* When prayed privately, specific personal intentions may be included here.
