Collect at the Dedication of a Church

Almighty God, to whose glory we celebrate the dedication of
this house of prayer: We give you thanks for the fellowship

of those who have worshiped in this place, and we pray that
all who seek you here may find you, and be filled with your
joy and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and
reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now
and for ever. Amen.

(BCP 254)
