I know you are all busy in this season, but, truly, this is important. As you know, Bishop Whalon has announced his retirement, and a Search and Nomination Committee has been formed to discern candidates for the next bishop of our Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe. YOUR INPUT is requested and needed! Please help us and fill out this simple on-line survey before Christmas. I promise it’s very quick and easy (mostly multiple choice questions)!
If you are unable to access the on-line version, there are some hard copies available at the church or from the Dean. hey should be scanned and mailed as quickly as possible to Helena Mbele-Mbong, e-mail: email@example.com with a copy to: David Case (Co-chair), e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also mail these printed responses to Helena Mbele-Mbong at 738 rue de Rogeland, Rés. 2, 01170 Gex, France.
The Search Committee and I thank you for your assistance as we discern together our mission in Europe and the next Bishop who will lead us forward.
- Dean Laird

O God, we pray for the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe as we discern and elect a Bishop to serve your people, build up your Church and proclaim boldly the Gospel to the world. Send us, we pray, an Apostle who is a wise counsellor, a merciful pastor, filled with your joy and grace. May your servant have the abundant gifts needed to lead your flock and the strength and courage to administer them. And may we renew and rededicate our lives to your will and service. All this we pray in the Name of our Great High Priest and Servant of the servants of God, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
