Novena for Tony Chancey (June 5-June 13)

(A novena is basically nine days of intentional, focused prayer by a group of people for a particular need or prayer intention.  You are invited to join us in prayer for Tony Chancey, long time organist, retired, of St. Paul’s who is in need of a liver transplant.)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful people;
And kindle in them the fire of your love.

Holy Father, strength of your children by night and by day;
Have mercy upon us.

Blessed Jesus, our food and our strength, light and guide of our souls;
Have mercy upon us.

Holy Trinity, fount of love;
Have mercy upon us.

Holy, blessed and glorious Trinity, I adore you.
In your perfect beauty, I adore you.
In your boundless power, I adore you.
With the Blessed Virgin Mary, I adore you.
With the holy angels, I adore you.
With the blessed saints,  I adore you.
In union with every Eucharist offered today, I adore you and offer this prayer intention on behalf of Tony, for his family, his doctors, nurses, and all who see to his care.

Most holy, most merciful, most loving God, send forth your holy angels from heaven to guard, bless, cherish and protect your servant Tony for whom our prayers are desired. And we ask the Blessed Virgin Mary, Blessed Philomena, Blessed John Vianney, Blessed Pantaleimon and all the angels and saints to intercede with us and pray to the Lord our God.

On Tony’s family, especially Christina, Philip, and Rebecca, send your blessing, O Lord.
On his doctors and nurses: send your blessing, O Lord.
On all who care for him: send your blessing, O Lord.

O Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need: Look upon Tony with the eyes of your mercy; comfort him with a sense of your goodness; preserve him from the temptations of the enemy; and give him patience under his affliction. In your good time, restore him to health, and enable him to lead the remainder of his life in your faith and fear, and to your glory; and grant that he may dwell with you in life everlasting.  Amen.

Sanctify, O Lord, those whom you have called to the study and practice of the arts of healing, and to the prevention of disease and pain.  Strengthen them by your life-giving Spirit, that by their ministries the health of the community may be promoted and your creation glorified; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Father…
Hail Mary…

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

What is St. Paul’s?

St. Paul’s is a parish serving Savannah and the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia in the fullness of the Catholic and Reformed faith of the Anglican Communion since 1852. As a Collegiate Church we are a parish that maintains a cooperative model of ministry which employs the many capabilities of the baptized in the pursuit of God’s mission.

In particular we are home to a community of priests and religious that maintains the classic round of worship commended by the Book of Common Prayer. This includes the public recitation of the daily offices of Morning and Evening Prayer and the complete round of Eucharistic celebrations, recommended by the Prayer Book Calendar and Lesser Feasts and Fasts. Furthermore, we provide extra opportunities for the celebration of the Eucharist in the observance of Feast Days of our Lord.

Besides the College of Priests that serve our Altars and call St. Paul’s home, six members of the Parish belong to three religious communities; including the Oratory of the Good Shepherd and two Benedictine Fellowships: the Community of St. Joseph and the Episcopal Community of St. Benedict.

Established as the first Free Pew Parish in Savannah, St. Paul’s has attempted for 164 years to live into the sacramental and evangelistic implications of the recovery and continuing formation of Catholic tradition in the Episcopal Church.

We are Children of God committed to deepening our discipleship, adopting the Episcopal Church as the spiritual home where we live into the challenges of the Christian faith. We see the diversity of our religious histories, interests and cultures as one of our strengths as a parish family. Primarily we are here because we find Jesus Christ in our worship, in our fellowship and in our ministry and service to others.

“How to Talk to Your Children About God”

In his article in the June 28th issue of The Living Church “Google or God? Both”, Jake Dell states that “We all do it. When looking for information, we use Google. It is no wonder then, that when people have questions about God, many no longer turn to a priest, but instead search for answers online.” The problem is that more often than not, the answers one finds may have little or nothing to do with the teachings of The Episcopal Church. One resource is a free, downloadable guide called “How to Talk to Your Children About God”. We encourage parents, and anyone else who is interested, to download the guide as a helpful resource.
