The Diocese Gives Thanks for the Ministry of the Rev. Phillip Byrum
The Diocese gives thanks for the ministry of the Rev. Phillip Byrum, retiring from service at St. Mark's and Iglesia de la Guadalupana, Wilson.
A priest in the Episcopal Church for over 53 years, Byrum served in the Diocese of North Carolina as rector of Christ Church, Albemarle, and St. Timothy's, Wilson, before serving St. Mark's and La Guadalupana for the last 25 years.
Gracious God, we thank you for the work and witness of your servant Phillip, 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.
