    Congratulations to you Brother Lucas! Greetings from an FSJ member, Ashley, who splits her time between New Hampshire and Guatemala. I remember when you first came into the order. How wonderful that you have been called to make this profound commitment. May your life with the Brothers continue to be a blessing to you and to the world.

    Congratulations Brother Lucas! I’m so thankful we could join on-line to watch your life commitment to the LORD.
    I pray that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. That Christ may dwell in your heart by faith and that you know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fulness of God!
    Love you,
    Aunt Julie

    Dear Brothers,

    Indeed, I remember all you in my daily prayers for months now. You are God’s Gift to take many souls onto the correct path in life with all the virtues. Please remember the greatest issues of our time wanton/intentional destruction of the environment worldwide, and excessive greed with our outdated quick money-making schemes and systems of the world that are completely destroying our natural life and our biodiversity and overall our entire planet. Also, there is the problem with people in high authority that continue to self-serve themselves to further all of this through promoting violence upon others through their corrupt industries instead of promoting and advocating for peaceful solutions. When one country is affected soon the next will be, and the next again, and then the entire world begins to suffer. We are all one people, one human race, one humanity my Good Brothers, so please remember this and do what is moral and ethical and what is correct in the eyes of our God to help protect not only yourselves, but also many others as well. In the United States you may say, “Step up you game !”

    With kind regards

  13. Jay W Vogt on June 16, 2022 at 11:41

    I am moved by your commitment, Lucas, and pray for a long and deep relationship for you with God and your Brothers.

  14. Rev. Deacon Roderick McDowell on June 16, 2022 at 11:27

    My prayers and best wishes go upward for Br. Lucas. Unfortunately I shall be unable to see the ceremony live as I have to preside at a funeral at the same time. Your prayers are requested for Eileen Kahler who will be laid to rest and her extended family. May God be with you all.

  15. Fr. Andrew Malcolm (FSJE - UK) on June 16, 2022 at 11:12

    May God bless you Br. Lucas and be with you always as you take this huge step forward. I shall be praying for you on Saturday.
    Every blessing to you and your brothers from The Fellowship of St. John in the UK

  16. The Rev. William Winston on June 16, 2022 at 10:56

    Br. Lucas, congratulations on taking this next step into your life with Christ through SSJE.
    I regret that I can’t be present in person or even for the live stream, as that’s the exact time that the Episcopal Diocese of North Texas votes to reunite with the Episcopal Diocese of Texas. I am required by my bishop to be present at the convention – and wouldn’t miss it for the world.
    Even so, please know that you are in my prayers and most especially will be on this Saturday morning.
