We invite you to use this prayer of thanks.

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that during the vacancy,
You have enabled this Benefice

Lord Jesus,
Thank you that your plans for us are good as Marc comes to guide us.
Thank you for your blessing as we look forward to a new start as we continue:
To grow in faith, love one another, care for those in need,
reach out to others, and welcome newcomers.

Holy Spirit,
Thank you for guiding the right candidate, Marc, to us,
for giving us patience and strength
so that together we have discovered your way for the future
and will continue to see your kingdom grow in this Benefice.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
