Hello St. Dunstan Family,
As you may or may not know, we have a Partner Parish in the Philippines. Our partner parish is St. Dunstan of Canterbury Mission in Catengan, Besao.
The Archbishop’s Office has made the following request, on behalf of all partner parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Philippines (EDNP):
Solidarity with EDNP in prayer at noon each day:
Our partner diocese is also under governmental directives about no in-person gatherings. Bishop Alawas has requested that all in their diocese stop every day at noon and say a simple prayer together. Let’s do the same as a way of standing in solidarity with them.
Mid-Day Prayer in Solidarity with the Episcopal Diocese of the Northern Philippines During the COVID-19 PandemicPrayer
where hearts are fearful and constricted,grant courage and hope.
Where anxiety is infectious and widening,grant peace and reassurance.
Where impossibilities close every door and window,grant imagination and resistance.
Where distrust twists our thinking,grant healing and illumination.
Where spirits are daunted and weakened,grant soaring wings and strengthened dreams.
All these things we ask in the name of Jesus Christ,our Saviour and Lord. Amen.
