This Week at St. Thomas
Special Request for Prayer on Saturday, April 30 from 10:00 am to 12:30 pmFor many months, the people of our congregations have been asked to pray for the discernment process to elect a new Bishop for the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Many hours of work and prayer have led to the calling of three godly, qualified candidates. The Diocesan Prayer Team is asking ALL our parishioners to pray earnestly for the election process on Saturday morning, April 30th from 10 to 12:30. Pray that the clergy and lay delegates will receive wisdom, direction, discernment, clarity of thought, and God’s grace to do His will in their task of electing our next Bishop. Pray also for peace for the candidates and their families. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. (1 John 5:14)
