Anglican Use Community Celebrates Fifth AnniversaryEveryone is invited to join the Fifth Anniversary celebration with Mass on Saturday afternoon, June 29, at 4:00 and for a birthday supper afterwards. St. Therese welcomed a small group of refugees from the Anglican Church in November, 2007, and on Pentecost Sunday, 2008, they were received into the full communion of the Catholic Church. That small group has continued to grow to include members from various faith backgrounds.
Anglican Use Community to Study Relationship with the OrdinariateTwo years ago Pope Benedict established an Ordinariate in the United States and Canada for the purpose of uniting the various Anglican Use communities in a common mission of unity and evangelization. Most existing communities joined immediately, and since that time a number of former Anglican and Episcopalian parishes have joined the Catholic Church and new ones have been established. Bishop Finn has recently given his blessing, and we are also seeking the support of Archbishop Naumann and the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas , to begin discussing how our Anglican Use community could become part of the Ordinariate for the entire Kansas City metro area while maintaining a mutually beneficial relationship with the parish and diocese. We hope that once we receive Archbishop Naumann’s blessing that we can publicize these discussions widely and open them to other former Anglicans who have already entered the full communion of the Catholic Church. Meetings should begin later this summer or early fall.
