Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

"Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and Lord Jesus Christ." (2 Th 1:11)

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ calls each of us as Christians to be modern-day Apostles. This means we are messengers of righteousness and the bearers of the joy of Christ. The Lord God calls us to serve Him here in this temporal world in various spheres of activity, each according to his own God-given talents and abilities. The Lord also calls us to serve Him in the Church for which He established the holy priesthood. Without clergy the Church would not be able to carry out God's Commandment. According to His Will, the Lord granted to the Ukrainian people in Canada our Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada, helping it to flourish and grow for almost 100 years. Today, our Church life has a great need for clergy who would work for its growth and God's glory because "the harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest." (Mt 9:37-38)

Although we live in a modern age, our contemporary world has much in common with the world of the early Christians when the Lord's first-chosen apostles faced great trials in spreading the Good News. God's call to pastoral ministry is just as great a challenge for the modern-day Christian. Today, we witness an increase in the overt persecution and subliminal discrimination of Christians worldwide. The strong influence of secular lifestyles turns our attention away from the Lord's teachings and love for others. A global culture of individualism diverts us from serving others to concentrating on ourselves. The vocation of pastoral ministry makes clergy front-line workers for Christ. They are the face of the Church to "reap what Christ has sown by the prophets" (Jn 4: 36-38) , gathering up those who have fallen away from His Holy Church to reveal to them Christ's True Path. The priesthood is a call to obedience and servitude to God, the Holy Orthodox Church and our fellow human beings around us. As He did during the early Church in the times of the Disciples, the Lord calls all of us to active participation in the Holy Orthodox Church through His pastoral shepherds. He calls all Orthodox Ukrainians to dedicated service of God and His people. This call to the holy priest hood is especially directed to the youth. As youth in our Church grow, they face myriad choices in professions and lifestyles. They should understand that the call to priesthood is the most important of vocations and professions. At the same time, the Lord also extends His call to those who are completing long experience in other occupations and desire to service the Church. We pray that "he that hath ears to hear, let him hear" (Mt 11:15) so that all worthy candidates may open the door of their hearts to the Lord.

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock. If any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and dine with him, and he with Me." (Rev 3:20)

For a century in this land, the Saviour has called many good and pious clergy to serve in our Church. We pray for a new generation of worthy candidates who hear and respond to God's call to service despite the temptations and demands of the temporal world.Our theological institution, St. Andrew's College in Winnipeg, Manitoba, is able to assist qualified candidates to fulfill the calling to priestly service to work for the glory of God and the salvation of His flock.

With hierarchical blessings.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

In the Old Testament, Moses led the people of God for 40 years in the wildness to prepare them to be worthy of the Promised Land. Similarly, St. Paul having received the miraculous call from the Risen Lord Himself on the road to Damascus, took time to prepare himself to preach the gospel that he had once persecuted (Galatians 2:16,17). Our Lord and Saviour Himself, after being Baptised in the River Jordan, spent 40 days in the desert as God-Man preparing for His earthly mission which began with a call to repentance.

"The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel." (MK 1:15)

Christ Himself prepared for His mission on earth. So to each of His servants prepared themselves both before and after the call by God to service. They understood that God requires not only the willing but also the able servants who are prepared spiritually and academically to serve the people and God throughout their lives. Thusly, the Lord God has called us to serve and each of us who answers the call must be prepared to serve. I sincerely invite all who feel the call of God to His service to come and study at St. Andrew's College in Winnipeg in preparation for ordination and life-long service to God and His Holy Church.
