Postponement of the Meeting of the House of Bishops to elect the Archbishop of Armagh

The meeting to elect the Archbishop of Armagh, due to take place on 27th and 28th February, has been postponed due to a bereavement experienced by a member of the House of Bishops. Please continue to support the Church of Ireland and the bishops as they prepare to meet in community to elect a new Archbishop of Armagh.

The following prayers may be helpful:

 

For the guidance of the Holy Spirit

 

God,

who from of old taught the hearts of your faithful people

by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit:

Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things

and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort;

through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,

who is alive and reigns with you in the unity of the Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen

 

For the ministry of all Christian people

 

Almighty and everlasting God,

by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church

is governed and sanctified:

Hear our prayer which we offer for all your faithful people,

that in their vocation and ministry

they may serve you in holiness and truth

to the glory of your name;

through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
