The ordinands this week, not in alphabetical order, and with retreat co-leader the Rev. Jon Feuss, during a retreat at St. Paul’s Commons, Echo Park.

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts, in your divine providence you have appointed various orders in your Church: Give your grace, we humbly pray, to those being ordained and consecrated in the Sacred Order of Deacons today at 10 a.m. at St. John’s Cathedral – Stacey Forte-Dupre, Tim Hartley, Ryan Macias, Brian Tucker, and Susanne Wright-Nava – and so fill them with the truth of your doctrine and clothe them with holiness of life, that they may faithfully serve before you, to the glory of your great Name and for the benefit of your holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
