Today the Order of Preachers, OC celebrates with joy and thanksgiving the first anniversary of the Consecration of the Most Reverend Aaron Edmund Newton Cass to the Episcopacy. Thank you, Your Eminence, for your love, your guidance, your wisdom, and your service to us, and for your dedication to Our Lord.
Colossians 1: 3-4 We always give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ when we pray for you. For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all God’s people.
Philippians 1:3 I thank my God for you every time I think of you.
You are loved and respected more than you can imagine.
Almighty God, Heavenly Father, we thank you, for our beloved, Presiding Bishop Edmund and for our life together. You have led him by the Holy Spirit to serve your people in this Church, to build up your Church, and to glorify your name. We have worked in common for the sake of the Gospel. Together we have learned from your Word. Together we have broken bread and given thanks. In thanksgiving, we praise you for raising up faithful servants among us for the ministry and oversight of your Church. And we pray that Edmund may continue to exemplify, in word and deed, the Gospel of your Son. Grant that we, with him, may continue to serve you in the Church on earth, and be brought to rejoice in your kingdom forever; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
