Postponement of the Meeting of the House of Bishops to elect the Archbishop of Armagh

The meeting to elect the Archbishop of Armagh, due to take place on 27th and 28th February, has been postponed due to a bereavement experienced by a member of the House of Bishops. Please continue to support the Church of Ireland and the bishops as they prepare to meet in community to elect a new Archbishop of Armagh.

The following prayers may be helpful:

The guidance of the Holy Spirit

God,
who from of old taught the hearts of your faithful people
by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit:
Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things
and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort;
through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,
who is alive and reigns with you in the unity of the Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

For the ministry of all Christian people

Almighty and everlasting God,
by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church
is governed and sanctified:
Hear our prayer which we offer for all your faithful people,
that in their vocation and ministry
they may serve you in holiness and truth
to the glory of your name;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
