Welcome to the University of Central Lancashire. Having recently retired from a career at this University it is good to serve with my colleagues in the Multi-Faith Centre and be part of the Chaplaincy Support Services of the University.
As you engage with the rich learning environment of this fine University I trust that you will have as your ideal the principles and values contained in one of the Articles of Faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: "We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul - We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely ,or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."
Jesus Christ is central to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which bears his name. Every prayer in the home and church, every sermon in a chapel closes in the name of Jesus Christ. The emblems of the Sacrament(Communion) that are taken weekly in Worship Services are symbols of his atonement for mankind.
Latter-day Saints accept the New Testament account of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. He set the example in his life for all to follow and made the atoning sacrifice that all human kind might be resurrected to immortality. The central purpose of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is to help all to come to Christ and be perfected in him
I trust that you will have an uplifting and productive time while at the University. If there is anything that I can do to support and enrich your time and experience here at UCLan, please contact me and arrange a meeting. I will be in the Multi-Faith Centre from time to time but an initial call or email is suggested.
