Hope in the Future
Forming Missionary Disciples
Building Missionary Parishes
Hope in the Future is an invitation to every parish in the Diocese to recognise and develop their missionary identity and their call to evangelise.
First and foremost this process needs to be rooted in prayer and sustained by prayer which is why we are encouraged to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Hope in the Future, builds on Faith in the Future. The theme of Hope which is key to the catechesis of Pope Francis.

Hope in the Future Prayer for Schools
God our loving Father, we thank you for blessing our parish communities with
all that we need to respond to our vocation to be missionary disciples.
We ask you to pour out afresh the gifts of your Spirit upon each one of us,
that we may be inspired to serve you in new and creative ways, bringing your light to the world.
We ask your blessing upon us as we journey together in hope through Christ Our Lord
