Welcome to St. George's Cathedral
in Kingston, Ontario, Canada

In only a few days I will celebrate the 25th anniversary of my ordination as a Deacon.
One memory that stands out for me from that night, is the Intercessor singing out the beautiful words of the Veni Creator:

Come Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
And lighten with celestial fire
Thou the anointing Spirit art,
Who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.

As we approach the Feast of Pentecost and the remembrance of God pouring out the Holy Spirit upon those first followers and sending them out to proclaim Good News in a broken and hurting world, those same words of the veni creator come back to me.

May God pour out the Spirit once again upon the church, and inspire us to get out into that broken and hurting world with renewed strength.
