O God, the giver of all good things,
We bless and thank you for Archbishop-elect Patrick,
for the five years of his ministry and servant leadership among us
as our Bishop in the Diocese of Sale.
We thank you for the example of goodness that he has been to us
and by which we have been encouraged and inspired
in our journey of discipleship of your son, Jesus.
May your Holy Spirit continue to grace him
with the gifts of wisdom and strength, gentleness and compassion.
May he be welcomed joyfully into the Archdiocese of Adelaide,
now entrusted to his care and leadership.
May you continue to guide him and bless him all the days of his life.
We ask this through your Son Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen,
Our Lady of Perpetual Help pray for us
St Mary of the Cross MacKillop pray for us.
