Today, Trinity Sunday, was Fr. Chris’s and Celeste’s last Sunday with us at St. Mary’s. They have been a true blessing to our parish family, and we pray that as they continue their good work at St. Andrew’s in Emporia, Kansas that both they and the parishioners at St. Andrew’s will be blessed as we have been blessed at St. Mary’s.
Almighty God, you sent your Son Jesus Christ to reconcile the world to yourself: We praise and bless you for those whom you have sent in the power of the Spirit to preach to Gospel to all nations. We thank you that in all parts of the earth a community of love has been gathered together by their prayers and labors, and that in every place your servants call upon your Name; for the kingdom and the power and the glory are yours for ever. Amen.
