A Prayer For This Time of Change and Transition


The Transition Committee invites our Diocese to join together in prayer as we prepare for the consecration on May 20th:
Loving God, as Ecclesiastes reminds us, “For everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.” We are in a time of change and transition as we give thanks for the ministry of Bishop Dietsche as our Bishop and look toward the consecration of the Bishop Coadjutor Elect, Fr. Matthew Heyd. We ask your presence as we celebrate the blessings of leadership we have known and hope for blessings yet to come. Be with Bishop Dietsche and his family as he approaches retirement and be with Fr. Heyd and his family as he prepares for his consecration as a Bishop. Let this be a time of listening and discernment as we hear your calling of us to work together to bear witness to God’s kingdom here in the Diocese of New York and in the world. We ask this in your most holy name. Amen.
