The Diocese Gives Thanks for the Ministry of the Rev. Jill Beimdiek
The Diocese gives thanks for the ministry of the Rev. Jill Beimdiek, interim rector of St. Paul's, Smithfield. The Rev. Beimdiek has served as the interim rector since September 2020. Prior to serving in Smithfield, Beimdiek served as interim rector at St. Mary's, Columbia, in the Diocese of Upper South Carolina. Beimdiek was ordained here in the Diocese of North Carolina in 2004, and we wish her Godspeed as she enters retirement and looks toward new adventures.
Gracious God, we thank you for the work and witness of your servant Jill, who has enriched this community and brought gladness to friends and family; now bless and preserve her at this time of transition. Guide her in the continued use of your gifts. Give her sustenance for temporal and spiritual needs, friends to cheer her way, and a clear vision of the ministry to which you are now calling her. By your Holy Spirit be present in her pilgrimage, that she may travel with the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
