Fr Jesus Manuel welcomed into the Diocese

Fr Jesus Manuel Mejía was received into the Anglican Communion during a special Eucharist in the Bishop's Chapel on June 21st.
A head teacher and former Roman Catholic priest, Fr Jesus had been considering the possibility of becoming an Anglican for some time.
He was accompanied in the Eucharist by his parents and his brother and sister.
Originally from Huaraz, he was greatly influenced by the Benedictine community there in his early years, and from this contact he heard God's call to the priesthood.
To begin with in the Diocese he will work closely with the Bishop, who made clear in his sermon that anyone who comes to the Diocese of Peru must be willing to be involved in mission. We are a missionary diocese and all we do is centred around the great commission of our Lord Jesus Christ to his Church to proclaim the Gospel and share his love with others.
