Convention Liturgy

As you prepare for our Convention we would like to ask for three kinds of help.

First, we ask that all members ponder the readings for that Sunday and pray for both the Convention itself and for our organization's work.
The readings are:

  • Exodus 17: 8- 13
  • 2nd Timothy 3:14- 4:2
  • Luke 18: 1-8

We shall open the Convention with this prayer:
" As long as Moses kept his hands raised up, Israel had the better of the fight, but when he let his hands rest, Amalek had the better of the fight. Moses' hands, however, grew tired; so they put a rock in place for him to sit on. Meanwhile Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Good and Gracious God, ,may our hands always be raised up by the support of others as we pray and move forward in helping survivors and the Church."

Second, we ask for Eucharistic Ministers. If you are willing to serve in this way please contact Sally Vance-Trembath at

Third, we ask for suggestions for the Prayers of the Faithful. Please send your suggestions to Gaile Pohlhaus at
