Pray for a newly-ordained bearer of the Word

Peter Charles Street was ordained to the priesthood during an uplifting and encouraging liturgy at Sacred Heart Cathedral on Friday evening.

Bishop Bill Wright presided, assisted by Bishop Emeritus Michael Malone and many local and visiting clergy. The Chisholm Region was particularly well represented, since Peter has ministered there for some time.

Bishop Bill said, “...the first office of the priesthood [is] to be bearers of the Word to the people....To do that we have to allow God to make the Word known to us....We look at people differently because they are children of God....We bring the Word – as word, as wisdom, as knowledge, as truth. These things are privilege, a high calling....and it’s been a long journey...”

Bishop Bill urged all the People of God to support and encourage Fr Peter’s priestly ministry – and to remember that “We’re all called to live the best Christian life we can.”
