Loving God, You called St. Eugene
to send forth missionaries to proclaim
and live the Gospel among the poor.

Increase our love, we pray, for those
who are most abandoned. Extend your
loving call to many young people in our
community and grant them the desire
to give of themselves, their lives and
talents to the service of Jesus Christ and the Church.

May our young people
answer your call as Missionary Oblates
of Mary Immaculate to serve those who are in need.
This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen
