The diocese gives thanks for the ministry of the Rev. Pat Grace, retiring interim rector of Emmanuel, Southern Pines. Grace has also served recently as the interim rector at St. Stephen's, Durham; Holy Trinity, Greensboro; and Good Shepherd, Raleigh.

O heavenly Father, Shepherd of thy people, we give thee thanks for thy servant Pat, who was faithful in the care and nurture of thy flock; and we pray that, following her example and the teaching of her holy life, we may by thy grace grow into the stature of the fullness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
