A Very Moving Day: Parish Priest Induction Mass

Fr Peter writes:

“I would like to thank the parish as a whole for organising a truly wonderful day for my induction as your Parish Priest. I am so grateful for all the hard work behind the scenes to bring the parish together. Guests and priests from outside the parish commented on how kind and welcoming you all were. I have to say that as I write this on the evening of the day of my induction, I feel the weight of responsibility for your wellbeing more than ever! It is my responsibility to make sure you are properly fed with Christ’s spiritual food so that you grow in faith and understanding – so that together we all grow in faith and understanding. I have no doubt that with the help of the Holy Spirit, we will look after each other. I pray that I will remain here with you for some time. I would like to thank our Episcopal Vicar for SW London, Canon Gerard Bradley, and all my brother priests for coming to support us. A special thank you also to our guests – Methodist Minister Mark Wakelin, CofE Rev Luke Wickings of St Paul’s, Hook, and the Leader of the Council of the Royal Borough of Kingston, Andrea Kirsch and his wife, Griseldis – both of whom are our elected representatives for the Chessington South Ward. And a special thank you to our organist, Paul Reeves.”
