Bishop Peter, having offered his resignation as our bishop to the Holy Father, asks you to pray with him for God’s Spirit to guide the election of a new bishop for our diocese.


Lord God,
You are our eternal shepherd and guide.
In your mercy
Grant your Church of Northampton
A shepherd who will walk in your ways
And whose watchful care
Will being us your blessing.


Lord,
Bless us with the fullness of your love.
Give us the joy of having a shepherd
To lead your Church of Northampton
Who will be pleasing and acceptable to you.


Lord,
In your love for us,
Give us the joy of receiving a shepherd
Who will be an example of goodness
To your people and will fill our hearts and
Minds with the truth of the gospel.
