I'm making my final preparations to head off to Newark, New Jersey for the annual conference of the Anglican Use Society. Mr. Ralph Johnston of Our Lady of the Atonement in San Antonio will be posting reports from the conference to the blog The Anglo-Catholic and I will be posting reports here as well. Hopefully the various pieces of technology I'm stuffing into my bags will hold up and I'll be able to send along some photos and video of the event.
Two unfortunate cases of illness have already derailed plans by two conference goers: speaker Dr. William Oddie has come down with a case of cellulitis and Msgr. Daniel Hamilton has sprained his ankle (in a Corpus Christi procession!) and both have been instructed by their physicians not to travel. Dr. Oddie's paper will be read by Father Allan Hawkins, pastor of St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Use church in Arlington, Texas. There are attempts being made to arrange an audio hookup so that Dr. Oddie can answer questions, but these last minute scrambles, in a venue far from home, are never easy to pull together. We'll let you know.
I'll be traveling down with David Burt and Fr. James O'Driscoll, after an early morning Mass at Fr. O'Driscoll's parish in neighboring Rockland. Then on to I-95 for yet another road trip.
