Missional Minute

In this season of Advent, while we wait for light in the darkness, there are so many for whom the darkness envelopes their lives.  May we ask God to reveal to us His plans, His time for us to bring light to the darkness.  Lord Jesus, Come Soon. 

Please remember in your prayers:

– the clergy and people of our Diocese

– those who are sick, suffering, fearful or in need, and their caregivers, especially doctors and nurses

– for peace within our country, and in the world, remembering areas of war, unrest and riots, and so many refugees. We ask for wise discernment in our leaders.

– for the victims of violence and natural disasters and those who suffer from the emotional and physical wounds from conflict

– for those who mourn

– our Indigenous brothers and sisters, remembering their hurt and grief at this time;

– those who are persecuted and oppressed for their faith in Jesus Christ
