Almighty and everlasting God, we thank thee for thy servant George Augustus Selwyn, whom thou didst call to preach the Gospel to the peoples of New Zealand and Melanesia, and to lay a firm foundation for the growth of thy Church in many nations. Raise up, we beseech thee, in this and every land evangelists and heralds of thy kingdom, that thy Church may proclaim the unsearchable riches of our Savior Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Also in @LichfieldCath George Augustus Selwyn (1809–78): 1st Anglican Bishop of New Zealand from 1841 to 1858. He returned to be Bishop of Lichfield from 1868 to 1878. Bit of a legend.
