Almighty God, giver of every good gift; Look graciously on your whole Church, and so guide us in this parish during this time of transition and search that we shall grow in our commitment to one another and to the work that our Lord has given us to do. May we come to choose a faithful pastor to join us in our ministries in our parish, community, and diocese: through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Vestry and Search Committee have announced that Father Christian Senyoni and his three children, who currently reside in Jamestown, ND, will be visiting Rice Lake in the coming week. He has been invited to celebrate and preach on Sunday, July 29. And he will be interviewing with the Vestry and Search committee prior to that.
Plans are underway for him and his family to see our community, to check out employment, to look at educational, musical, and recreational opportunities for his children, and to eat and visit with our congregation.
Please pray for God’s will in this endeavor. You are encouraged to be present at the Sunday Eucharist, to help with any meals that will be offered, and to investigate employment and educational opportunities for this family.
