A Few Words from Father Steve
My soul proclaims the greatness of the
Every evening in the Church’s prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours, we hear these words of Mary in the Gospel Canticle. These words are the words that are in my heart this week as I celebrate 4 months of being your administer. These words resonate with me as I reflect on the best part of priesthood, serving and getting to know God’s people.
At this special time in my life, allow me to reflect upon my time with you at Saint Christine. After just a few months as your administrator, my soul is certainly proclaiming the greatness of God. Every weekend and everyday makes my spirit rejoice. In being named your administrator, God has certainly looked upon me, His lowly servant, with great favor. As I write this to you, I am overwhelmed by how welcome I feel here at St Christine Parish. The liturgies are so very moving. I believe you can tell the most about a parish from the way we celebrate Sunday Eucharist. After all, that is where we begin and end. From the Eucharistic table, all else flows.
From the weekend’s liturgies, I learn that we are family. As family, God’s family, we share our hopes and dreams, our sorrows and our struggles. What an amazing privilege to be with you on this journey we call life. It is my hope and my dream that we can continue to grow closer as a family as the months become years.
My heart is also full of gratitude this week. I am eternally grateful to my brother priests who have served you in the past and those who continue to serve with me. All of those who have come before me and those presently serving have made a great impact.
Happiness is also found in my heart as I think about the staff I am honored to collaborate and with whom I serve you, God’s family at Saint Christine Parish. In the same way as the priests, I am thankful for all the staff that has served you in the past as well as the present. Please allow me to humbly tell you that my impression of the present staff is that they are phenomenal people with an incredible sense of service. The talents of the staff bless us. I saved the best for last, you. You have made me a very happy priest. I am truly amazed by all the wonderful things happening here. I look forward to sharing the special moments of your lives. I want to laugh and cry with you. I want to be there for you. I am extremely proud and privileged to be your Administrator. Thank you for the honor. May I be deserving of it. I love being here.
With love, Father Steve
