Prayer for Choosing a new Parish Priest

Despite the ferocious heat on the weekend, we had an excellent turn out for the parish consultation. Under the sure guidance of the facilitator, we agreed on many positives about our work to date and our future together. 

Now, as we turn things over to our Nomination Committee and representatives from the Diocese, we support them with this daily prayer:


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 fulfill our calling.
Give to those who will choose, wisdom,
discernment and patience,

and to us warm and generous hearts,
for Jesus Christ’s sake.


Amen.
