    VCC Mourns Bishop John McIntyre's Passing

    Special Bulletin 

    We stand with our Anglican Community today as we mourn the passing of a beloved, Bishop, Ecumenical companion, family man and friend.

    It is with sadness that I inform you that the Bishop of East Gippsland John McIntyre, passed away yesterday after a short illness.

    Since returning to Victoria in 2006, John has endeared himself to many for his down to earth approach, whilst  maintaining a strong Spiritual life. His work as both an Anglican minister and since 2006 as a Bishop has seen him build strong relationships with many sectors of the community especially our indigenous brothers and sisters.

    He has been a strong presence in the ecumenical world working closely with Victorian Council of Christian Education (serving as immediate past Chair), Victorian Church Leaders Meetings (serving as immediate past chair) and the Victorian Council of Churches where he has contributed in many ways.

    John will be missed by all who have come to know and appreciate his wisdom, Spiritual insights and pastoral care.

    At this time we hold his immediate family in our prayers as they mourn the loss of their husband and dad.

    Rev. Ian Smith

    Executive Officer

    Victorian Council of Churches.

  • Thomas Merton

    MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

     From "Through the Year with Thomas Merton"
