The search for the 11th Bishop of the Diocese

God of all grace, we pray you bless this gathering of people for this holy work, committing themselves to presenting to this branch of your holy Church persons they discern will faithfully and effectively serve as Bishop of your Church and in this our Diocese of Delaware.

Open their hearts and minds to one another and your guiding Spirit; knit them together in community prepared to share in the work set before them. May they be blessed in their labor with engaging and faith-filled nominees, every one of whom will be a faithful Bishop to our diocese.

All this we ask in the Name of the one who is the Bishop of all souls, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
