Father Liias reports on our recent Retreat and lays out the practical plans proposed and agreed upon — most importantly the Pledge campaigns which will not only provide a budget for the next year with funds sufficient to support our next Pastor — but whose outcome will have a role in our Bishop's deliberations concerning that replacement. All members, friends of our community, and supporters of the project of the Ordinariate are urged to read; seek the Spirit, and consider your response. A copy of the pledge form is attached to the letter, which may be downloaded and printed; copies will also be available at all Masses. May God bless us all!
We are a joyfully Catholic community bringing the riches of our Anglican tradition of worship with us into the Church as envisioned by Pope Benedict XVI in his Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum coetibus. We are part of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, the structure established in the United States and Canada for Episcopalians, Anglicans, and other Protestants wishing to enter into communion with Rome. Our Pastor, Father Jürgen Liias – an Episcopal priest for 40 years – was ordained in the Catholic Church in April 2013. You do not have to have had any association with Anglicanism to attend our Masses; all are most welcome to share in our life and fellowship. Learn more about us on these pages, and then please join us as we worship in the Beauty of Holiness and the power of the Spirit!
