We are blessed and grateful to welcome a number of Priests who will celebrate our Mass during Father Liias' prolonged absence. The first two are old friends of our community: last Sunday saw the return of former Episcopal priest Father Hal Obayashi; next week we will greet the former Pastor of Beverly, whose fatherly love gave our community its first home in the Church and much more. Those present during those days need no introduction, as Father Barnes will always have a special place in our hearts and prayers but might be interested to know what he has been doing since our ways parted, all too soon; those who have joined our community since then will certainly enjoy learning a bit about Father Barnes before meeting him Sunday.
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!
