Congratulations to Brian King who has been recommended for training for Reader Ministry at a recent Diocesan Selection Conference. Brian’s training will begin this month and will involve both academic and practical work. Training takes place over 3 years. Once licenced, a Reader may, at the invitation an Incumbent, visit the sick, teach, preach, lead Morning and Evening Prayer and services of the Word, distribute Holy Communion, conduct Communion for the sick with elements already consecrated, and, with the Bishop’s permission, conduct Funeral Services. Please pray for Brian as he begins his training to serve in Tavistock, Gulworthy and Brent Tor.
Please continue to pray for Sue Tucker and Judith Blowey as they undertake their training for Ordination as Priests.
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,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and for ever. Amen.
