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
July 14, 2024

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Our readings today remind us to live our lives in total surrender to God’s care.

The Gospel recounts when Jesus instructs His twelve apostles to begin their missionary work two by two. He encouraged them to take very little — a walking stick and sandals.

If you can recall a time you packed for a trip, or even left the house for a day’s travel, you might remember making a list or packing days in advance. We tend to pack so we know we will be comfortable.

If we extend this concept of “comfort” into other areas of our lives, we will most likely find a few instances where we ensure life is comfortable. It could be buying extra food at the grocery store, making sure we have the most updated technology, or even feeling safe in our bank accounts.

It is not bad to have extra food in the pantry or a new phone. And it isn’t bad to save money. These things can be good when used properly.

But what if we are looking to these things for comfort, security or even happiness?

Imagine if Jesus approached you and said, “Go out and do my work, but you can only bring a walking stick and shoes.” Would you be willing to surrender all the rest?

A key component of living out our call as Christian stewards is total surrender. It is trusting in God during our best moments and our hardest. It is looking to Him for security, comfort and happiness.

Reflect on the ways you might be looking for comfort in the things of this world. Tangibly find a way to become independent from that “thing” so that you can become more dependent on God.
