Thus Ends My Tenth, and Final, Christmas at Christ Episcopal Church and, with It, My Service to the Parish

Thank you, all.  It's been fun.  May God's blessings be upon you.  Good-bye.
Almighty God, we thank you for feeding us with the holy food of the Body and Blood of your Son, and for uniting us through him in the fellowship of your Holy Spirit. We thank you for raising up among us faithful servants of your Word and Sacraments. We thank you especially for our rector's work among us, and the presence of his family here. Grant that both he and we may serve you in the days ahead, and always rejoice in your glory, and come at length into your heavenly kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
