Br. Luke’s Ordination

This weekend we Brothers celebrated with joy the Ordination of our Br. Luke Ditewig to the Transitional Diaconate. We thank you for upholding Luke in your prayers as he grows into this new role in his ministry among us.

    Congratulations Brother Luke and many of God’s blessings. I enjoyed my short stay in one of the hottest October’s ever in the Boston/Cambridge area.

    The beauty of Br. Luke’s commitment shines far and wide. All best wishes for joy, fulfillment and God’s abundant grace.

    May you be deeply blessed in your diaconal ministry. The current circumstances of the world give you a very unique opportunity to discover creative ways to carry out the servant ministry. May God inspire you and gift you with perseverance, remaking of self, and eyes to see Christ in new ways.

    From your friends at Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Indio, California,
    The Rev. Dr. Brian D. Johnson

    A joyful occasion for a true communicator of Christ’s deep and real love for all his people. Thank you for sharing that truth so powerfully. May you continue to be blessed on your journey in love and faith.

    I send Brother Luke love and congratulations on his ordination. Brother Luke, I still meditate and refer to the sermon you gave me in one of our one-on-one sessions that reminds me to FLOAT.

    At long last! “This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.” [Ps.118:23]

    May your priestly ministry be as challenging and fulfilling as mine has been. . . .and still is.

    Much love and congratulations to Brother Luke. He always spoke with economy and clarity to me on all my retreats to SSJE. Appreciate his counsel.

    Pls send warmest wishes to Brother Jonathan Maurey who accompanied me on my visits.
