Welcome Father Cline

Dear Parishioners of St. Charles and Saint Luke,

I am very glad to get a chance to introduce myself to you.  My name is Fr. Brian Cline, and Bishop Bonnar has assigned me to be your new parochial vicar.  I grew up in Boardman. My mother Patricia Cline taught at St. Charles School from 1975-1980 and she currently resides in Elyria. I have one brother Scott and a nephew Patrick.  My father Jim passed away three years ago.  I attended the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio and St. Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, Pennsylvania and was ordained in 2010.

My first assignment was at St. Michael the Archangel in Canton as parochial vicar, I was then assigned pastor of St. Barbara in Massillon, most recently I was pastor of St. Joan of Arc and St. Joseph in Canton.  I have two golden retrievers Autumn and Harper.  I enjoy working on cars and have restored a 1931 Ford Model A Cabriolet and a 1931 Ford Model A Sedan Convertible.  These past two weeks have been very enjoyable catching up with so many people from the area and meeting parishioners at St Charles and Saint Luke.

I am looking forward to assisting Msgr. Zuraw and Sister Mary Alyce and making an active contribution to the life of the parishes, as well as provide a credible witness to the joy of the Gospel. I hope I can do that while getting to know the wonderful parishioners at both parishes.

Fr. Brian Cline

Stewardship Reflection for
June 9, 2024

Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

In today’s First Reading from the Book of Genesis we hear the story of Adam and Eve and their sins, defying God. However, when God was present in the garden, the man and woman hid themselves. Adam responds to God’s question why in part by saying “I was afraid… so I hid myself.” Did he, do any of us really think he could hide from God?

As children many of us may have hidden from a parent when we did something wrong, and it was in violation of some specific order we had received. Our efforts to hide what we did and to hide ourselves were probably no more effective than Adam’s.

As humans we know the temptation of following our own plans, even if they are contrary to God’s. We think we know better, and we may try to still have it our way. If what we have done is particularly shameful, we may try to hide our sins from God.

The sincere truth is that we cannot hide from God any more than Adam and Eve could. Psalm 139 declares, “Where can I hide from your spirit (God’s)? From your presence where can I flee? If I ascend to the heavens, you are there; if I lie down in Sheol (the place of the dead) you are there, too. If I say, ‘Surely darkness will hide me’… Darkness is not dark for you.”

What are we hiding from? In recent weeks we have learned over and over how much God loves us. It is time for us to accept that and not hide.
