Interestingly he had been ordained deacon only on the previous day, Saturday, August 23.

Fr. Wagner, a former priest in the Episcopal Church, served as rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Kewanee, IL, from 2005 to 2008. He and his wife Carol and their two children – Joseph, 13, and Natalie, 8 – converted to the Catholic Church in June of 2008 and moved to Boerne, Texas. He grew up in Northeast Ohio and graduated from Revere Senior High School in Richfield, Ohio, in 1976.

He currently serves at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church, Boerne in the Archdiocese of San Antonio, where the Church of St Gilbert Ordinariate Community is hosted.

    Do any Ordinariate News readers belong to St Gilbert’s, Boerne? I would be interested in hearing some news from this community. I can see from the bulletins of the host parish, St Peter’s, Boerne, that the Ordinariate Rite mass is celebrated there faithfully every Sunday and Wednesday. But apart from the announcement of Fr Wagner’s ordination there has been no other news in the bulletin or on the St Peter’s website. The St Gilbert’s community itself seems to have no online presence, at least none accessible to the general public. The choice of name tells us that this must be a group with an interesting take on Anglican Patrimony. Why not share?
