Please pray for Rt Rev Stephen Wright, who will be installed as Bishop of Hexham & Newcastle on Wednesday 19th July at St Mary’s Cathedral, Newcastle.
A Prayer for Bishop Steven
Lord, rock of our hearts,
from a sea swept island
you sent Aidan and Cuthbert
to sow your Word fruitfully
throughout our Northern Land and
you inspired Bede to understand and speak your truth
reflected in our lives and in our history.
Grant your servant, Stephen,
whom you have called to follow them,
a rich share in this heritage –
to speak your Word courageously
to teach wisely
and to lead with love.
Monsignor Kevin Nichols 1929-2006
