Dear family in Christ
We stand at the threshold of a new season in our continual diocesan journey as we prepare for the consecration and enthronement of Bishop-designate (BpD) Canon Dr Titus Chung on 18 October 2020. At Bishop Rennis’ Thanksgiving service on 30 August, he commended BpD Titus to the diocese and asked for fervent prayers for him: “Titus has a warm pastoral heart, a well-formed theological mind, a steady pair of hands and a desire for the truth of the Gospel to be practised and be made known. I therefore commend him and his wife Connie to you, for your full support and fervent prayers.”
- Let us thank God for Bp Rennis and all the past Bishops who have served and led the Diocese of Singapore faithfully for their guidance, teaching, nurturing and nourishing the flock with the Word of God in the love of God.
- Pray for the Lord’s strength and protection upon BpD Titus, his wife Connie and their sons Theodore and Thaddeus, against the spiritual attacks of the Enemy.
- Pray for God’s anointing upon BpD Titus to have the spirit of wisdom, counsel and compassion that he may discern God’s will for the Diocese as God’s appointed shepherd, pastor, teacher and leader.
- Pray for God’s provision of spiritual gifts upon BpD Titus to lead the diocese’s multiple ministry platforms in the parish churches, mission deaneries, Anglican schools and community services in the faithful proclamation of the gospel.
“And when (Paul and Barnabas) had appointed elders for them in every church, with prayer and fasting they committed them to the Lord in whom they had believed.” Acts 14:23
