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!

A PRIEST OF THE PATRIMONY PREACHES ON THE LITURGY

"What is the point? What are you trying to do with all of this business, these vestments, the incense, the singing, these gestures, all of this that can could be done in twenty minutes?”…in that question there is such a basic misunderstanding of the Liturgy…“How can he give us his flesh to eat and his blood to drink?”…He cannot if the Mass exists so that people feel good about themselves…He cannot if the Mass is focused on who is in the congregation."

Father Richard Cipolla, former Chaplain of Corpus Christi College, Oxford (although an American) entered the Catholic Church through the Pastoral Provision in the 1980s. This sermon on the meaning of liturgy is informed by his experiences as an Anglocatholic at Oxford as well as his recent participation in the Sacra Liturgia conference in New York City. Click the title above to read it as well as an essay by him the WSJ published when the Ordinariate was erected.
