Harvest Thanksgiving at the Cathedral
O God, we thank you for this earth, our home;
For the wide sky and the blessed sun,
For the salt sea and running water,
For the lasting hills
And the never-resting winds,
For trees and the common grass underfoot.
We thank you for our senses
By which we hear the songs of birds,
And see the splendour of the summer fields,
And taste of Autumn fruits,
And rejoice in the feel of snow,
And smell the breath of spring.
Grant us a heart wide open to all this beauty;
And save our souls from being blind
That we pass unseeing
When even the common white torn
Is aflame with your glory.
O Gracious God, we give you thanks for your overflowing generosity to us.
Thank you for the blessings of the food we eat and especially for this harvest festival.
Thank you for our home and family and friends.
Thank you for our health, our work and our play.
Please send help to those who are hungry, alone, sick and suffering war and violence.
Open our hearts to your love.
It is with heartfelt thanks and no small measure of sadness, that we pay tribute to Tony who has been Sacristan for over 20 years, here at the Cathedral. Tony has made known his wish to retire. He started as a young Altar Server, then went on to help his own father as usher, and each year had a wonderful creative hand in the Christmas Crib. We wish him a long and happy retirement. Thank you Tony, for everything!
