24 July 2019
Dear Friends in Christ,
I am greatly pleased and thankful that the Most Reverend Stewart Payne will remain with you as Priest-in-Charge.
His faithful and dedicated service during the past year has brought growth and renewal to the Parish of St. Mary the Virgin. We are grateful to Archbishop Payne and to each of you for the good work and stewardship over the past year and look forward to the future with increased hope and confidence.
In speaking with Archbishop Payne I am aware of his deep love and care for each of you and his ongoing desire to continue building up the ministry of the parish along with you.
I pray that our Lord Jesus Christ will grant to Archbishop Payne and to each of you an abundance of grace and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit so that as a parish you will go from strength to strength.
I am so very grateful to each of you and I give thanks to God for the Parish of St. Mary the Virgin and the joy of ministry we are all experiencing together.
Your servant in Christ,
The Rt. Rev John OrganBishop of Western Newfoundland
