Gracious and loving God, we pray for this parish of Holy Cross, our vestry, and all who are serving on the Search Committee. Guide us all that we may be patient in our discernment, steadfast in our commitment, and imaginative about our future. As we journey through the days ahead with expectancy, and at times unease, help us to recall your faithful presence, your deep compassion, and your abiding love. We thank you for the gifts, talents, and skills with which you have blessed us. Be with us as we move forward rejoicing in the Spirit and supporting one another. Bless us that we may continue to make Christ visible in God’s community. All this we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

This time of transition between Fr. Mike’s retirement announcement and the arrival of our next rector can be a time of great hope as we envision the future. It can also be a time of some anxiety as we live in the tension of uncertainty.

Here you’ll find news and resources to help you stay informed and centered in prayer & reflection. Look for this page to grow and change as we journey towards the dream of God in this place and time.
