FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK
My dear Parishioners,
With a grateful heart I thank you for your participation in the Liturgy of Thanksgiving on the occasion of my 50th Anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood, and also in the reception that followed. My family has asked me to convey to you their heartfelt thanks. It was a joy to see that so many of my priest friends could come for the celebration. Many thanks Enes Ring, Monika Hines, Joan Cochrane and to all who worked so hard, and spent so many long hours to make the hall so welcoming. And, of course, our Colonial Caterers, had such a delicious spread. Thank you Jerry, Arthur, Terry, Emma and staff.
Following Sunday, we shall be celebrating the Feast of Pentecost, the birth of the Church. From the small band of followers of Jesus, the Church has always tried to be the true Bride of Christ. Powered by the Holy Spirit, she has spread and continues to spread throughout the world, welcoming people of different races and cultures, for the past 2,000 years; as some would say: under the same management! We take pride in being members of the Church of Christ and proud to follow Him. May we renew our faith and grow in His grace.
Fr. Edwin Mathias
