God our Father, in baptism you call your people by name and make us one family in your Church. We praise you for your goodness; we thank you for your gifts. Father, bless your Church with love. Raise up in the Diocese of Fresno good and holy families: loving husbands and wives, devoted parents and children. Raise up from our families dedicated and generous leaders who will serve as priests and religious for your people. Send your Spirit to guide and strengthen them that they may serve your people following the example of your Son, Jesus Christ, in whose name we offer our prayer. Amen.
