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




God of the new and eternal covenant,

as the forty days of the great flood

swept away the world’s corruption

and watered new beginnings of righteousness and life:

grant to us, who are washed clean and born again

in the saving flood of baptism, the wellspring of your grace,

that your gift of new life may flourish once again;

through Jesus Christ our Redeemer,

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

one God, for ever and 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
