Of Our Brother, Deacon Terry L. Star

The Rev. Dcn. Terry L. Star

Thank you so much for the outpouring of love and prayers today for our community. Our prayers are with the family of Deacon Terry Star. Deacon Terry left this earth for the glories of heaven on March 4. His death was unexpected, caused by a heart attack that likely happened suddenly and peacefully in the night or early morning hours of March 4.


Lord Jesus Christ, we commend to you our brother Terry, who was reborn by water and the Spirit in Holy Baptism. Grant that his death may recall to us your victory over death, and be an occasion for us to renew our trust in your Father’s love. Give us, we pray, the faith to follow where you have led the way; and where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, to the ages of ages. Amen. (BCP, 498)


While we grieve your death we acknowledge that you have passed from death to life, following the path blazed by Jesus, the great conqueror of death.



Rest in peace, grow in grace, and may light perpetual shine upon you!


Expect to hear more from the House in the coming days. Funeral service arrangements have not yet been announced, but will take place in Standing Rock, Deacon Terry’s hometown in North Dakota.
