The Rev. Jamie Barnett, vicar of the Church of the Epiphany in Oak Park, after her festive celebration of new ministry service on Saturday morning (Jan. 29, 2023).

Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

— Book of Common Prayer
