    As individuals, families and parishes, our mission as the Diocese of Worcester is to respond joyfully to Christ’s call to become more fully the People of God. Though imperfect, we are a blessed people striving to participate in Christ’s mission of reaching out to all. Therefore, we accept the Gospel challenge, which calls us to bring another to a deeper knowledge and love of God. Since God calls us to live in community in the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves in this time and place to becoming a prayerful and faith-filled Church that truly reflects the glory of God.

      On Divine Mercy Sunday, April 12, 2015, before the Holy Door at Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Bull of Indiction entitled Misericordiae vultus (Eng. The Face of Mercy) was read. The Bull serves as the fundamental document that outlines the overall spirit and the intentions of the upcoming Holy Year and delineates the spiritual fruits that the anticipated renewal will hopefully reap for individuals and the Church.

  • Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life

    O God, throughout the ages you have called women and men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses of Faith and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering of ourselves to you. Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
