Photos & Link to Excerpts from Roger Wolcott Service 

This past Saturday many of us came together in person and online to celebrate the life of Roger Wolcott. Below is a link to a video of the first reading (done by Roger at an 8 AM St. Aidan's service on December 4), as well as Cameron's homily from Saturday. Other video remembrances will be added in the coming days as we receive permission to put them on the website.

Here is the video link:

Below are some photos from the event, with thanks to the photographers who share them - Betty Carmack, Weston Morris, Paul Nocero, Kateri Paul, Cameron Partridge.


Diocese of California Bishop Search - A prayer for transition
The Standing Committee has asked congregations to pray for the new Bishop search process. We'll add this to our weekly petitions in the Prayers of the People, and from time to time we will pray this prayer they have provided for us during this period of transition in our diocese:
  •     Almighty God, giver of every good gift, by your grace you have called us into one fellowship of faith: Look graciously on the people of the Diocese of California during this time of transition.  May we be guided in heart and mind by your Holy Spirit to seek and welcome a faithful pastor who will care for your people and equip us to perform the work of the Church. Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what you would have us do. Save us from all false choices, that in your light we may see light, and on your path may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.
