Rite I:
God of a pilgrim people, who didst call Samuel Johnson, Timothy Cutler, and Thomas Chandler to leave their spiritual home and embrace the Anglican way: We give thee thanks for their devoted service in building up thy Church and shepherding thy flock in colonial times; and we pray that, like them, we may follow where thy Spirit leads and be ever eager to feed the hearts and minds of those entrusted to our care, in the Name of Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
