The Diocese Gives Thanks for the Minstry of the Rev. Dr. Clarke French
The Diocese gives thanks for the ministry of the Rev. Dr. Clarke French. French has served as the rector of Church of the Holy Family, Chapel Hill, since February 2011. Additionally, he has been active in the life of the Diocese serving as the chair of the diocesan Commission on Constitution and Canons, a member of the Commission on Ministry, Diocesan Intake Officer, and as chair of various legislative committees of Diocesan Convention. French departs with his wife, the Rev. Canon Dr. Sally French, who is the bishop-elect in the Diocese of New Jersey. We wish Clarke, Sally and their family Godspeed into this new chapter of ministry!
Gracious God, we thank you for the work and witness of your servant Clarke, who has enriched this community and brought gladness to friends and family; now bless and preserve him at this time of transition. Guide him in the continued use of your gifts. Give him sustenance for temporal and spiritual needs, friends to cheer his way, and a clear vision of the ministry to which you are now calling him. By your Holy Spirit be present in his pilgrimage, that he may travel with the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
