Good people, this celebration has ended. Therefore, I bid you: Go forth into the world in peace. Be of good cheer. Hold fast to that which is good. Love and serve the Lord with gladness and singleness of heart, rejoicing in the power of the spirit. And may the blessings of God the Father, who created us; God the Son, who died for us; and God the Holy Spirit, who enlivens and makes us whole, be upon all of us this day and forever. Amen.
Father Jesse Vaughan, pastoral blessing and dismissal
