Grace Episcopal Church 
Weekly Update
July 31, 2018

Please join the Episcopal Church community today as we pray for Presiding Bishop Michael Curry as he undergoes surgery for prostate cancer.

"Strengthen your servant Michael, O God, to do what he has to do and bear what he has to bear; that, accepting your healing gifts through the skill of surgeons and nurses, he may be restored to usefulness in your world with a thankful heart; through Jesus Christ our Lord." Amen (BCP, p. 459)
