Pray for Discernment as we Search for our new Rector!


We are beginning our transition period now that Father John has retired and we need everyone's help. In the next few months, we will be asking for your participation and input through surveys and forums. In the meantime, please PRAY!! 

Pray for our congregation, Vestry, and Discernment Committee. Pray as we discern the Holy Spirit's direction for where God is calling us to be.

Pray your own prayer or include this prayer in your daily devotions:

Heavenly Father, we pray intently and expectantly as we search for a new rector of St. Mark’s. We ask Your help in discerning who it is that You are calling to serve. Speak to our hearts, Lord, so that we may keep a humble heart. Allow us to use the gifts that You bestowed on each of us to accomplish this important task. We pray for our future rector, his or her family, as well as our own parish family. May Your will be done in Your way. Grant us patience and understanding throughout this process. Amen

Matthew 7:7-8:  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be open to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be open.

Philippians 2:3-4:  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.  Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.
