The first principle of the Ordinariate is then about Christian unity. St. Basil the Great, the Church’s greatest ecumenist, literally expended his life on the work of building bridges between orthodox brethren who shared a common faith, but who had become separated from one another in a Church badly fragmented by heresy and controversy. He taught that the work of Christian unity requires deliberate and ceaseless effort...St. Basil often talked with yearning about the archaia agape, the ancient love of the apostolic community, so rarely seen in the Church of his day. This love, he taught, is a visible sign that the Holy Spirit is indeed present and active, and it is absolutely essential for the health of the Church.

First Friday Supper, Devotions, and Talk at Mount Calvary - Friday, February 7, 2014

  1. It does appear that Mt. Calvary Catholic Church is the only Anglican Ordinariate parish actively engaged in activities and letting the world know about it. How is the Ordinariate to grow if no one cares enough to (and I hate using the word) ADVERTISE!
    This seems to be the exact same problem that the Pastoral Provision Parishes have had with the exception of OUR LADY OF THE ATONEMENT under Father Christopher Phillips! What is wrong with you people anyway?????
