In this place, among these people,

the lost are found here, the dead are raised.
We are living the Gospel story;
lives are changed, and mountains moved.
Won’t you come and work among us?
You are welcomed, you are loved.

All: Light is dawning this day.
One: Look to the west.
All: Prepare for the journey ahead.
