Revd Stewart and Revd Sarah still maintain their passion for their olive plantation. In 2012 the oil, St. Boniface Olio Verde Novella won a gold medal at the Royal Perth Show and the trophy for the Best Boutique Olive Oil in Western Australia. Proceeds from the sale of this premium quality first pressing olive oil goes to St Boniface.
There is a long tradition of church cats and Stewart and Sarah’s cat Misha is a delightful addition to the cathedral family. An inhabitant of the church office and grounds and occasionally to be seen on the edges of chapel services, Misha has been known to lighten the mood at many meetings. She also makes sure she is there every morning when the cathedral doors are opened.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. Acts 16: 31
Almighty God, whose blessed Son before his passion prayer for his disciples that they might be one, as you and he are one:grant that your Church, being bound together in love and obedience to you, may be united in one body by one Spirit, that the world may believe in him whom you have sent, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
I am tremendously humbled to have been appointed Dean of Bunbury. I gratefully thank the Bishop and the Cathedral Chapter for having confidence in me to undertake this ministry of leadership. I am excited for what lays ahead, both for my own minisry in this place and the ministry of the cathedral.
On behalf of my family, I thank the Cathedral Parish and clergy for the warm welcome we have received upon our arrival. The work done on the Deanery is so appreciated. The new kitchen, patio paving and fencing is wonderful.
I want to acknowledge my predecessors Stewart and Sarah and for the wonderful work and ministry they have undertaken over the past few years. I especially thank Stewart for the progressive work he has done in defining the difference in roles between Cathedral Parish Priest and Dean of the Cathedral. The culmination if his vision and work was seen in the revised Cathedral Statute passed by Synod last year. For this foundation which he laid, I thank him.
I thank the Reverend Karon Austin, to be made Canon of the Cathedral today, for the locum work she has done during the interregnum. Karon has been preparing for my arrival over the past few months in so many different ways which has made the transition from one parish to another much easier. Thank you Karon for your kindness and friendship.
As I start my ministry here in the Cathedral I do acknowledge that it will be a period of transition. Periods of transition trigger a wellspring of emotions - from concern and fear to excitment and joy. But we recognise that in the mnidst of this transition, God is in our midst: attentive, caring, present. God tends us with patience and care, leading us in hope through the wilderness to the joys of the promised land. As part of this new beginning, I also recognise that I am not Stewart, and Stewart is not me. So I will naturally do things differently because I have been gifted by God in differnt ways to Stewart. Different is not worse or better. Different is just not the same. I pray that you will be gentle and forgiving with me as I learn what it means to be a Dean of a Cathedral.
God bless us as we begin this journey today together.
