For my parish - new rector and new vicar
« on: February 26, 2017, 09:32:31 AM »
One month and half has passed from the death of the rector (the main priest) of my parish, fr. Nicholas. Today, before the gates of the Great Lent, we've been announced that the new rector is fr. Adam - he's also my priest, spiritual father and confessor.
And fr. Paweł, who had been a deacon for 16 years, yesterday was ordained to the holy priesthood and today he's been announced to be one of the vicars at our parish.

Please, pray for both of them, and for our parish in general.

Lord have mercy!

Added: please also pray also for our another vicar, fr. Peter, who is absent for 3 weeks because of his personal problem (I don't want to tell more that somebody from Poland may read more and pass on what is happening to him.

In conclusion, still, prayers for fr. Adam and fr. Paweł are highly appreciated since both are in completly new roles for them and because of the absence of fr. Peter and the period of Great Lent (which is demanding for parish life, moreover our patron is st. John Climacus, so the parish feast is approaching) the clergy is quite stressed and tired.
