Fr Darryl Jordan is now Pastor of the Bournemouth Ordinariate Mission

Fr Darryl Jordan - ausschnittOrdinariate priest Father Darryl Jordan has been parish priest of the diocesan parish of St. Thomas More, Iford, Bournemouth, which has hosted the Bournemouth Ordinariate Mission for some months now.

He has now officially been appointed Pastor of the Ordinariate Mission as well. meaning that – like several other Ordinariate priests in the UK – he has a double responsibility both for the territorial parish and for the Ordinariate community.

The previous Pastor, Mgr. Edwin Barnes, has posted the following report of Fr. Darryl’s induction on his blog Antique Richborough:

Handover

This weekend Mgr Keith Newton was with us to inaugurate Fr Darryl’s ministry as Pastor to the Bournemouth Ordinariate Mission. He preached on the Epistle – ‘not many wise, not many mighty’ – then we all joined in a very happy lunch party.

Among other things Mary is our safe-guarding officer – a task she also undertakes in her daily work which involves organising the fostering of children in the Bournemouth area. Mgr Keith is modelling the Lenten Vestments recently bought by the Mission, and known affectionately as the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk set.

As always the bring-and-share lunch was a huge success. Almost everyone who was at Mass contributed to the party, so that there was enough food left over to fill the proverbial twelve baskets.

Mgr Keith insisted on having a photo with our youngest members (and our largest family group), children of Sherlyn and Dennis.

    A few of the younger OCSP clergy have taken charge of parishes which have an OF mass at one time and the Ordinariate Rite at another. This offers them a rectory and a stipend which would be beyond the means of the Ordinariate group. As older clergy who have been able to more or less donate their services start to retire from active ministry this may become the most practical model for the Ordinariates, although it is not ideal from an “identity” standpoint, I suppose.
