Collect for the Ordination of Florence Li Tim-Oi, first woman priest in the Anglican Communion
Gracious God, we thank you for calling Florence Li Tim-Oi, much beloved daughter,
to be the first woman to exercise the office of a priest in our Communion:
By the grace of your Spirit inspire us to follow her example,
serving your people with patience and happiness all our days,
and witnessing in every circumstance to our Savior Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
