Search Corner Information

We ask you to hold in your prayers the members of the Committee as they continue their important work of discernment:

Sheila Collins and Freddy Tovar (Co-Chairs), Aracelis Mullings (Vestry), Kathi Armbrister, Laura Keith, Rafael Padilla, Glen Velker and Jim Carlton (Chaplin).

Gracious and loving God, prosper with your blessing the mission of All Souls’ Episcopal Church.  Deepen, we pray, our love for Christ Jesus and for one another.  As we lift the members of the Search Committee to you, we ask that your guidance and light may be upon them. Fill them with wisdom, and grant them courage and boldness as together they discern your will for a new priest and pastor for this congregation. Surround them with your unconditional and abiding love and illumine them with the glorious light of your salvation. We ask these things in the holy and sacred name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Amen.

O Lord, you have taught us that without love whatever we do is worth nothing; Send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts your greatest gift, which is love, the true bond of peace and of all virtue, without which whoever lives is accounted dead before you. Grant this for the sake of your only Son
Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 Almighty God, you have given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech you that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of your favor and glad to do your will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in your Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to your law, we may show forth your praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in you to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
