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. "

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. 

Jesus, during Your ministry on Earth You showed Your power and caring by healing people of all ages and stations of life from physical, mental, and spiritual ailments. Be present now to people who need Your loving touch because of COVID-19. May they feel Your power of healing through the care of doctors and nurses.

Take away the fear, anxiety, and feelings of isolation from people receiving treatment or under quarantine. Give them a sense of purpose in pursuing health and protecting others from exposure to the disease. Protect their families and friends and bring peace to all who love them. 

· O God, protect us against the ravages of illness. Stop the advance of the Coronavirus disease that threatens the human family across the globe. We pray through the intercession of Your Mother, Refuge of the Sick and in the name and power of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.


The Coronavirus Rhapsody

Pray for the new coronavirus to stop spreading.

Almighty God, we know that everything is in Your sovereign control. We ask that You keep this new coronavirus from continuing to spread. Give government officials the ability to safely handle people arriving from other countries. Help people decide to stay home instead of traveling or going out needlessly. Holy Spirit, remind people to wash their hands properly. And while it may be heartbreaking, comfort families as they decide to keep their distance from elderly or other high-risk family members.
