Dear Friends in Christ,
Several items for your attention:
1. Last Wednesday, Jon Chalmers was ordained to the diaconate for service in the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, the pastoral structure created by Pope Benedict for former Anglicans who come into full communion with the Catholic Church. Deacon Chalmers will be ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Guglielmone here at St. Mary’s on Sunday 3 June 2012 at 6 pm, and all are welcome to attend.
2. In the weeks ahead, local Anglicans who desire to join the Catholic Church and preserve their patrimony will be organized into a community of the Ordinariate under the patronage of St. Anselm. This community will be meeting at St. Mary’s under the leadership of the once and future Father Chalmers, and in due course, he will be celebrating Mass on Sunday evenings according to the Anglican Use of the Roman Rite. Once it is established, this Mass will be open to any parishioner who wishes to attend, but it will be primarily for the benefit of the members of the Ordinariate. For more information about the newly forming community of St. Anselm’s, Greenville visit www.ordinarychurch.org...
