Special Announcement

Covid-19 and our parishes


On Monday, March 16, 2020, Bishop Robert C. Wright wrote in a letter to the community that “after much consultation and prayer, and in light of the most recent update from the CDC, I have decided to direct every congregation to move all worship and meetings online effective immediately and until further notice.”

"Now is the time for us to use the gift of tradition along side of new ways to practice being the body of Christ and to deepen our connections with one another and with the wider world. "


Prayers

A Prayer for the World

God of Love and hope,
You made the world and care of all creation, 
and yet the world feels strange and threatened right now,
Threatened by the Coronavirus.

We are anxious that we might become ill; anxious for family, friends, for parents and their children,and for our jobs and security.
We pray for all who labor in essential service; for first responders, and all who keep watch; for those who stock our stores, for medical workers tending to our sick, and working for a cure; for all who must how up against their will.

We pray for all who are ill.
In the midst of our worries and dangers protect us and help us find peace.
As we look for signs of your goodness and love towards us, keep our hearts always in your love;


Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 


We pray today for all those suffering from COVID-19, and especially today for those anxious about infection:

O Lord, our refuge,
our hope, and our peace,
be with us this night
as our protector and our salvation.
Calm our anxieties,
ease our fears,
and soften our sadness,
that we may find in you
our true rest, and our perfect restoration,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
