FOR THE RECTOR SEARCH
Almighty God, giver of every good gift; look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for St. Bartholomew’s that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer, p. 818)
