Who Will be our New Rector?
Almighty God, giver of all good gifts, look upon our Christian family of St. Stephen’s with grace, and guide our hearts and minds as we lead the process of choosing our new Rector, that we may in God’s good time receive a faithful servant who will care for your people and support us in our ministries.
Draw us together so that during this time of transition our faith may be deepened and our witness strengthened;
in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
