ST. PATRICK’S PARISH MISSION – FEBRUARY 22, 23, and 24, 2021
St. Patrick Catholic Church in Tampa hosted our 2021 Parish Lenten Mission, led by Fr. William Garrott, O.P., on February 22nd, 23rd, and 24th.
William Garrott was born November 13, 1963, in Hagerstown, Maryland. He is the youngest of eight children and has 24 nieces and nephews. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and working several years in the field of technology transfer, he entered the Order of Preachers in August of 1988. After six years of spiritual and academic formation, he was ordained to the priesthood in May of 1994. Father Bill Garrott, O.P. spent four years serving as an associate pastor in Ohio where he gained experience with RCIA, adult education, Confirmation retreats, Bible studies, training and leading altar servers, lectors, and Pro-Life Marches. Father Garrott then obtained a Masters in Theology from the University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (known as the Angelicum) in Rome. Father Garrott also served as the Director of Vocations for the Province of Saint Joseph.
Father Garrott uses his musical abilities on piano and guitar to preach parish missions, weekend retreats, days of recollection, and various youth events. He composes his own music and has release his own CD’s. He was 17 years old and deeply caught up in the world of rock music when he first experienced the joy of knowing, loving and serving Jesus Christ. Through word and song, Father Garrott desires to draw listeners more deeply into that unconditional love which the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit reveal to us through the Catholic Faith.
MISSION PRAYER OF RENEWAL
Lord Jesus, You are the Savior of my life! With my whole heart I desire to live in Your radiant light. I wish to enjoy forever the fellowship of Your saints. I firmly reject the dominion of darkness and beg You by the power of Your blood shed on the cross to forgive my sins and cleanse me from all my guilt. I promise with Your gracious help to follow You ever more closely, trusting only in Your abundant mercy. Stir up the gifts of the Holy Spirit in my soul that I may cry out with You, “Abba, Father!” Grant that I may find inspiration and strength through prayer, that I may experience Your abiding presence in the Sacraments, that I may be guided by the truth of Your Word which comes to us in Scripture and Tradition. Help me to forgive and serve others as You have forgiven and served me. Help me to use the gifts You have given me to build up Your one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. In all my trials, help me to trust that You will never abandon me. Lord Jesus, when my life on earth is complete, send Your Holy Mother Mary to lead me to the eternal home of our Heavenly Father together with St. Joseph and all the Saints. I ask all this in Your holy and glorious Name Who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.
