Welcome

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!

Thank you Deborah Gyapong (of the FOOLISHNESS TO THE WORLD blog) for bringing this to our attention.

New (and very interesting) Interview with Bishop Lopes…

Our faithful Thurifer and Intercessor Joe McLellan brings news of this interview, just published in the Jesuit journal AMERICA MAGAZINE. In it our newly-Consecrated Bishop not only provides his own thoughts by answering a range of well-considered questions concerning the Ordinariate but also quotes the Pope Francis's thoughts in our regard. Well worth reading — particularly when considering Bishop Lopes will be among us in just two weeks: Deo Gratias!
