Almighty God, who by the power of the Holy Spirit anointed your Son to be Messiah and Priest forever, grant that all whom you have called to his service may confess the faith of Christ crucified, proclaim Christ’s resurrection, and share in Christ’s eternal priesthood; who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

At this morning’s chrism mass at St. John’s Cathedral in Los Angeles, the bishops, deacons, and priests of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles will renew their ordination vows. The photos are from the same liturgical time last year.
