This is the Facebook page for St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church, a new Catholic parish being formed in far Northwest Houston. St. Margaret’s is a parish in the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, an order created by Pope Benedict XVI on January 1, 2012, for former Episcopalians and Anglicans who desire full communion with the Catholic Church. The founding pastor is Fr. Steve Sellers. For more information about our organizational meetings, please leave a FB message on this page for Fr. Sellers. As we are assembling our initial contact lists, please leave your name, address, and mailing address in the FB message. I can also be reached at:
drstevesellers@yahoo.com and at 701 429-0852 (cell).

    THANK YOU! Could not find anything anywhere about it. Now I have sources.

    “We hope to schedule our first masses by the end of summer” according to the St Margaret’s, Cypress website. Not sure whether that means Labour Day or the equinox, but school has already started in Texas. Speaking of which, the St Margaret’s Facebook page, which is updated very regularly, ishows a point on a Google map which could well be Cy-Fair High School. So our expectation is growing. Fr Sellers initial contact list of 200 families suggested that this could be a very large group by Ordinariate standards.

      EPMS,

      You wrote: Fr Sellers initial contact list of 200 families suggested that this could be a very large group by Ordinariate standards.

      This number is certainly encouraging, but let’s not count our chicks before they hatch.

      I have no idea whether these families are former Anglicans who are already part of the Catholic Church or others — either members of The Episcopal Church (TEC), the Diocese of Fort Worth formerly of TEC, or various “continuing Anglican” bodies — who are considering reception into the full communion of the Catholic Church. In either case, however, it is likely that some will choose to remain where they are.

      Still, even half of that number would form a good core for a new congregation!

      Norm.
