Welcome to The Parish Church of ST. LUKE
July 1st. 'Jottings from the Vicarage'
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Well, Thursday is almost here and we look forward to welcoming Bishop Nicholas [and all of you of course] to the licensing service at 7p.m. July 3rd.It does always feel a little daunting when beginning a new ministry in a new parish.
However, both Doreen and I have been so warmly and kindly received, it already feels like we are home!It will be a somewhat sad occasion too, as we will be saying goodbye to so many dear friends from our old parishes, who intend to come on Thursday evening to be with us.
As priests God calls us to serve Him wherever He sees fit to place us, even if it feels as though He is taking us out of our ‘Comfort Zone’. However, I have no doubt that He has called us here to St. Luke’s to serve His people and to bring the Word of God to those in our community who perhaps as yet do not know of the love our Saviour Jesus Christ has for them in their lives.
That’s the real reason for parish ministry, which was illustrated so well by St. Jean- Marie Vianney otherwise known as the ‘Cur’e of Ars. A man who for forty years, served faithfully and tirelessly in the small village of Ars northwest of Lyons in France. He was famous for his preaching, religious instruction and love of the Holy Eucharist.
St. Jean-Marie Vianney is the patron saint of all parish priests in the world and justly so. His dedication and love he had for those in his pastoral care, has been a source of inspiration to me over the years and is the role model for every parish priest.
My first task here will be to have St. Luke’s open daily for Morning & Evening Prayer 08.30 and 17.30. From Tuesday –Friday, beginning this Friday 4th July. I firmly believe that it is essential for all our community to know that we are there for them, that’s why our church needs to be open, in order to be a visible sign in the market place, a locked church serves only one person and it’s not God!!
So dear friends, as we prepare for the next phase of our spiritual journey and as we together seek God’s blessing on all we hope to achieve, may God our Father, through our Lord Jesus Christ and the power of His Holy Spirit guide us to do His will now and always.
May God bless you all.
