At post-Holy Eucharist lunch bunch Thursday at St. Paul’s Commons, Echo Park, true and laudable servants Canon Jim White, the Rev. Canon Susan Russell, and the Rev. Norma Yanira Guerra.

Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
