Beloved in Christ,
On the occasion of its third Diocesan Day, The Diocese of South-West
Beginning on June 5th, 2012, Slootho will be held every Tuesday evening at 9:05 PM CST. Our Diocese is widespread and it is quite difficult to accommodate four time zones. We hope this arrangement will still allow for everyone across the Diocese to join together in prayer and study of God’s word. The prayer line is expected not to exceed thirty minutes and should end by 9:35 PM CST each week.
The conference dial in number is 1-218-632-0187 and the passcode is 3703#. The prayer line will begin with the Wednesday Compline prayer followed by a devotional message and litany for intercessory prayers, especially for those with special requests. We desire to encourage our youth to lead this effort, and therefore, we will need participation from all areas to lead the songs, psalms, and litany for each week. We encourage individual parishes or participants to sign up for each week via e-mail or on the website. A minimum of two and maximum of six people will be needed for each week’s prayer.
On this website, we have included the compiled handout for the prayer as well as a sample recording. We encourage everyone to have a printed or online copy of the handout when joining the prayer line in order to follow along and be full participants. Devotional messages will be led each week by a member of the clergy or one of the seminary students. Each devotional message will be recorded and made available online by the end of each week.
1) Blessings (Family, Studies, Jobs, Upcoming Parish Events/Conferences, etc)
2) Sickness (Physical or Spiritual)
3) Departed (Recent or Memorial)
We hope to have you join us each week as we begin this new endeavor.
To the glory of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and always, and forever. Amen.
