Season of Prayer for Bishop Philip

“For God, whom I serve with my spirit by announcing the gospel of his Son,
is my witness that without ceasing I remember you always in my prayers …”
Romans 1:9












In just a few weeks’ time, Canon Philip Mounstephen will be ordained and consecrated bishop at St Paul’s Cathedral (11am, Friday 30th November – St Andrew’s Day) and we very much look forward to welcoming him to the diocese in the new year, when he will be installed as 16th Bishop of Truro at Truro Cathedral.

We have prayed as individuals, in our local congregations, deaneries and as a diocese throughout the vacancy in see and appointments process. Our prayers continue now for Philip, Ruth and their family and for the diocese, as Philip prepares for both the service at St Paul’s and the beginning of his ministry here in Cornwall.

For those who wish to make use of them, there are prayer resources available to help unite us in our prayers at this very significant time for Philip and for us all.
