Envision: The corporation and parish council have been encouraged by your feedback to the Envision questions. We are taking on the responsibility of praying about our responses and discerning where God will be leading us in the coming months and year. Thank you.

Please remember in your prayers:

– The Prayer of Jabez.

– our congregation of St. Benedict’s and the coming year.

– those who are sick, suffering, fearful or in need, remembering those suffering from COVID-19 and their caregivers, doctors and nurses:

– for peace within our country, and in the world, remembering the countries of Ukraine and Iran; we pray for areas of unrest and riots, asking for wise discernment in our leaders;

– for those who have died and those who mourn;

– for the poor, the homeless, and the needy in our communities, and those who help them;

– the victims of violence and natural disasters, especially the victims of earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, and those working to bring relief;

– our Indigenous brothers and sisters, and their leaders in our diocese and country;

– refugees, remembering those fleeing those fleeing war in the Ukraine, the Taliban regime, and other oppressive regimes;
