Fr. Smuts reports on his blog about the soon to accomplished priesting of John Hunwicke. Fr. Hunwicke, in my estimation, is a wonderful example of an important part of the Anglican Patrimony: the priest-scholar represented by so many notables, starting with George Herbert and continuing on through John Henry Newman, John Mason Neale, Charles Winfred Douglas and Dom Gregory Dix. It is an aspect of the patrimony that should be continued.
Fr Gerard sent in the news via e-mail:I thought you might like to know that John Hunwicke will be ordained priest on 7pm om Wednesday, June 27th at the Oxford OratoryOn his blog, Fr Hunwicke’s Liturgical Notes, he writes himself:I trust, Deo volente, to be admitted to the Presbyterate of the Ordinariate of our Lady of Walsingham on Wednesday June 27, at 7.00, in the Oxford Oratory Church. It would help if priests willing to take part in the Laying On of Hands could let me know. I would be pleased if there were many.
