For me, why a priest? Because I feel called to seek out ways of ensuring people understand what worship is, that they can worship in truth and wisdom. I feel God is calling me to share the mystery of the eucharist and build up the body of Christ in unity, power and peace with a vision to know and share the Gospel. I also feel God is calling me to create a space within the church that is open for people to explore and feel welcome; the church building should be a place used by people, a place they can come in and go out. The body of Christ – the church should be a people who welcome with loose hands, who support with a firm hold and who love with endless passion; and it is to this that the nation should be attracted.
