We celebrate the birth of Eleanor Mare Haass:
Watch over thy child Eleanor Mare, O Lord, as her days increase; bless and guide her wherever she may be.

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favor, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP pg. 832)
