It hardly seems possible that eight years and four months ago Father Gordon arrived at St. Paul’s and now he is packing up and getting ready to move. He will continue his ministry as the Incumbent of Penetanguishene & Waubaushene and Priest-In-Charge of the Parish of Elmvale beginning February 1, 2016.
Father Gordon has shared in the events of our lives and brought strength and health to St. Paul’s during his leadership. We are grateful that he has been a part of our lives.
He leaves us at a time of great hope and promise for the parish. A healthy, spiritually strong church which has a deep focus outreach, well cared for buildings, and enlightening worship. He has been able to to deepen the spiritual formation in the lives of many through bible studies, prayer groups, and teachings.
Pray for him to have a smooth transition in his valuable ministry to his new parishes.
St. Paul’s is extremely thankful and appreciative for the time that Father Gordon has been with us. We will have a service of celebration and thanksgiving for the ministry of Father Gordon, with special music, on Sunday, January 24th at 10:00 am. Note, there will not be an 8:00 am service that day.
