Prayer & Fasting (for the Election of Coadjutor Bishop) ~ June 1, 2018
On June 9, 2018, the Diocese of Toronto will be electing a Coadjutor Bishop who will become the 12th Diocesan Bishop. This will require each member of Synod to discern God’s call for the Church. As with all spiritual discernment, this process will involve prayerful listening, reflection, and thoughtfulness. In preparation of this important moment, the Diocese is calling for us to participate for a single day in sacrificial listening for the voice of the Holy Spirit. This day of prayer and fasting is Friday, June 1st.

Almighty and All-Present God, who delights in those who earnestly seek your will, grant to your Church the riches of wisdom and discernment, that for such a time as this, a servant-leader may be chosen who reflects the character and wisdom of Jesus Christ.
