Praying for a new bishop – Dromore Cathedral

The Deans of our two Diocesan Cathedrals are calling on parishioners from across Down and Dromore to join them for two special nights of prayer for the process of selecting a new bishop for the Diocese.

The second night of prayer will take place in Dromore Cathedral on Friday 25 October and will run from 7.30–9.30 pm.  

Prayer cards are being distributed to every worshipping member of the Church of Ireland across the diocese.

O almighty God, who by thy Holy Spirit dost move the hearts of thy people; May it please thee so to direct the counsels of those who are appointed to choose a bishop for this Church and Diocese, that we may be given a pastor who in faithfulness and wisdom shall lead thy flock in the way of holiness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
