The Ordinariate: A Gift to be Shared from Benedict XVI – An Upcoming Talk in Portland, Oregon
by Gregory DiPippo
On August 5th, at 7:30 PM, Holy Rosary Church in Portland, Oregon, 375 NE Clackamas St., (known to many for its use of the Dominican Rite for important feasts), will be hosting a Dominican Forum talk by the Reverend Carl Reid, titled, “The Ordinariate: A Gift to be Shared from Benedict XVI.”
On January 1, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI established the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter for those groups of Anglicans in the United States who seek to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church. This is the second Ordinariate created in light of the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum coetibus, the first having been created for England and Wales on January 15, 2011. Pope Benedict’s gracious response represents an important and exciting new step along the difficult path toward Christian unity.
This will be followed the next evening at 7:30 PM by a Solemn High Mass according to the Anglican Use of the Roman Rite. This Mass will feature the group Cantores in Ecclesia singing the “Mass for Four Voices” by Thomas Tallis.
All are welcome who wish to understand and experience this great gift of our Pope Emeritus to our universal Church.
