The 15th Anniversary of Fr. Gregory’s Priestly Ordination

As I celebrate 15 years of being a priest, I would like to share with you the words, which I had printed at the time of my ordination.

Merciful God, bless my dear parents, my brother and my whole family and all those, whose friendship and kindness, you wished to offer me. Be a source of strength and joy for them. Make me a gift to others because everything, which I have received, has been a gift to me.

Jesus, I trust in you.

I chose these two phrases as an inspiration for my priesthood.                                                                    

‘But at your word I will let down the nets.’ (Luke 5,5b)

‘God is Truth, and whoever seeks the truth is seeking God’ (St Edith Stein)

I would be very grateful for your prayers on this day.
