A Call for the Diocese

 

As the 13th Bishop of Saskatoon, I call the Diocese to prayer for a conflicted and embattled world and church, where faith is diminished within and without. I call the Diocese to Truth, Reconciliation and Peace, where wrongs have been done, that we might walk toward peace, love and forgiveness, together with all peoples and Nations. I call the Diocese to prayer of faithful witness, in the ministry of the royal priesthood, to which we all have been called to as children of God our Creator.

PRAYER

Prayer is foundational and our strength in communion with God our Creator. In all things we must remember that the church belongs to Christ, and that we are members of a greater body, our prayers tie us together and bind us in the greater miracle and mystery of what we call the church.

Psalm 66:19 - 67:1

But truly God has listened; he has given heed to the words of my prayer. Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me.

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us.
