AT PENTECOST, WE CELEBRATE the gift of God’s Holy Spirit upon the Church. The E-mail: activity of the Holy Spirit is the subject of much interest these days. In John’s Gospel or the editor (e-mail below). (14:15-21) Jesus describes a vital aspect of the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of PARISH CLERGY his followers. Interim Priest-in-Charge Given the availability of a time machine, would we rather spend time in the company The Ven. Thomas M. Greene of Jesus 2000 years ago or continue with what we have as Christians now in the age Assistant Curate The Rev. Samantha Caravan of the Holy Spirit? Most people would probably opt for the former. But as Jesus Honorary Assistants prepares his disciples for his immanent departure, he explains that it is actually to The Rev. Dr. Peter Slater their advantage that he is going away. The astonishing truth is that the blessing of The Rev. Canon Dr. David Neelands the Holy Spirit will be even greater than the blessing of the physical presence of Jesus. The Rev. Dr. Karen Hamilton, Ecumenical Partner Jesus underlines the fact that the one to come is the Spirit of truth who will faithfully The Rev. Michael Marshall, make Jesus real to them. Hospital for Sick Children Director of Children’s Education But not having the physical limitations imposed by the humanity of Jesus, the Hilary Keachie Spirit is able to be in all places at all times, not simply dwelling with us but, more WARDENS importantly dwelling within us. That is why it is to our advantage. But it all depends Rector’s Warden (Human Resources) David Thornton on Jesus “going to the Father”, a route which takes him inexorably via the sufering People’s Warden (Property) and the glory of the Cross to the glory of the resurrection and the ascension.

Robert Morrow EDITORIAL COMMITTEE We read and hear that we will not be left comfortless; we will not be left orphaned. Editor That Spirit which we celebrate at Pentecost will continue to give us life as individuals Joyce Hamilton ( and as a community of faith. That will be so - that is the promise. The question is, Members do we believe it? Henry Zaluski, MJ Rosenthal, Photos: Deirdre Malone, Henry Zaluski, The commandments of Jesus are all to do with love.

We are Organist & Director of Music called to share back what we have ourselves already received. That is to be our most Eric Robertson defining and apparent characteristic. Parish Administrator & Rector’s Assistant Jean King Legend tells that Gabriel put the question to Jesus after the Ascension. Sexton “ What arrangements have you made for the continuation of your work?” Denis Delisle “ I have left eleven people”, Jesus replies. “What if they fail?” Gabriel asks. “I have made no other arrangements.” 2 / HERALD
