2024 Diocesan Cycle of Prayer


The Diocesan 2024 Cycle of Prayer has been updated to reflect our congregations and worshiping bodies by deanery.


Please remember the following congregations and worshiping bodies along with their clergy, staff, and parishioners on the Sundays designated below. By listing these intercessions in your bulletin and using them in the Prayers of the People, our unified prayer will lift up every member of our diocese as One Voice through One Church.

2024 falls in Lectionary Year B and is to be used each Sunday with the ANGLICAN CYCLE OF PRAYER

Note: The cycle of prayer is the same every quarter as each congregation is offered up in prayer four times each year.


Every Sunday:

Diocese of Southwest Florida — The Rt. Rev. Douglas F. Scharf; Companion Diocese of the Dominican Republic; Companion Diocese of Georgia; Companion Diocese of South Carolina; Companion Diocese of Western Louisiana
