A painting on display at St. Paul’s Commons, Echo Park, showing the original St. Athanasius Episcopal Church, Echo Park, building in downtown Los Angeles, circa 1873.

Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
