We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of the Eucharist.




God of all times and places,

in Jesus Christ, who was lifted up on the cross,

you opened for us the path to eternal life:

grant that we, being born again of water and the Spirit,

may joyfully serve you in newness of life

and faithfully walk in your holy ways;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen.


A Prayer for Choosing a new Rector

Bountiful God,

give to this parish a faithful pastor

who will faithfully speak your word

and minister your sacraments;

an encourager who will equip your people for ministry

and enable us to fulfil our calling.

Give to those who will choose, wisdom,

discernment and patience,

and to us give warm and generous hearts,

for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen
