  • ‘Fr. Davy’s ministry among us has been one of empowerment’

     “There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, not male and female, for you are one in Christ Jesus.”

    Paul was the Apostle to the Gentiles – a missionary for Christ. He wrote these famous words to the Galatians, living in what is modern-day Turkey. Paul welcomed each new community he visited as equal with the Jews, who first heard the Good News. He lived among new people as his brothers and sisters, and so convinced them, as well as the early church leaders, that unity in diversity is the hallmark of life in Jesus Christ.
