Parish Prayer
Blessed God, we give you thanks and praise for your many blessings to us and to our parish, especially for the new life we find in Jesus Christ our Lord and the power which is given by your Holy Spirit.  Increase in us, we pray, the gifts of faith, hope and love; give to our congregation the vision to see your ways and the wisdom to follow them; use us to bring many to know your saving love.  We know and affirm that you are already working in and through us to do these things even as we pray in the Name of Jesus.  Amen


















The late Bill Madison 
presents Bishop Elect Mark Beckwidth 
the following salutation

Accept the trust we offer thee, 
Our Bishop and our guide;
May justice, truth, and purpose high, 
In all thy power abide.

Oh! Lead us by the light of truth,
To walk in wisdom's way,
Through all the trying paths of life,
To realms of the endless days.
