Thank you for clicking onto this page reserved for the Diocese of the Southwest.
At this time, the Church has no active missions taking place in the Southwest region of the United States.
If you are a resident of any of the States that comprises this region and you wish to join us in creating a new pastoral mission, please know that we would be happy to work with you to achieve this.
Please contact Bishop James Wilkowski, Presiding Bishop for the Evangelical Catholic Church to begin a dialogue for Mission Development in the Southwest region of the United States. You may reach him via phone at 773-721-5383 for via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayer for Church Growth
Our Loving Father, We believe that Church is the body of Christ founded on the rock that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God.The Scripture says that neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who increases. Relying on this promise, Father, we enter into Your presence, for the growth of our Church. As the Living Word says, "Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it", we are totally helpless. Apart from You, we can do nothing. We beseech You, Lord, to pour out Your life-giving Spirit and Your enabling power upon the Church in an abundant measure and thus, bring about a total revival in the Church. Purge away all the sins, iniquities and uncleanness from the Church. Let Your ears be open towards all the prayers that come to You from this Church, day and night. May it be pleasing to You Lord, as a sweet incense before You. Let Your glory cover this Church. Father God, place Your mighty outstretched hands on every member and the leaders of the Congregation. Let the gift of prophecy operate in our Church Lord so that Your Word which says "but he who prophesies edifies the church" may be realized in the Church. Help us to be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. Father, let Your grace always abide. In Jesus' most precious name, we pray. Amen.
