I received the following correspondence from Deacon Chori Seraiah yesterday. I have been given permission to pass this along. I have my own thoughts to follow!
Please check his blog at: The Maccabean
I wanted to let you know that both Bp. Pates and Msgr. Steenson have encouraged me to begin working to form an Ordinariate community here in the Des Moines area. If St. Aidan's eventually chooses to join, we will just merge the two together, but for the time being, we can begin meeting as soon as we have just a few people who are interested. Feel free to get the word out to whomever you wish.
Also, I will be saying my first couple of Masses (Anglican Use) at St. Anthony's on Monday, July 9th at 10:00am, and Tuesday, July 10th at 6:00pm. All are invited to this as well (and it may be a good introduction for folks who are curious about an Ordinariate community).
In Christ,Chori Jonathin Seraiah
I cannot express to you how many prayers are being answered. I know that God works in his own time, but this is providential.
