    Praised be Jesus Christ!

    Facebook page of St Ninian and St Chad, Perth, has a couple of pictures of Fr Ian Wilson’s recent priestly ordination in Australia.

    When will we see any pictures of ordinations for the OCSP? The former clergy of Our Lady of the Sign, Fredericton and St Michael and All Angels, Dennison are still waiting, and I gather the priest of the group in Carlsbad, CA is waiting for his replacement’s ordination to move on to his new ministry as a chaplain. Several other groups remain without clerical leadership, in some cases for years. No doubt “much is going on behind the scenes,” as we are told on the St Margaret’s website, but it is also helpful to see some kind of activity in front of the curtain.

      Well, looks like good news in NB next month, so cross that off above list.

        EPMS,

        You wrote: Well, looks like good news in NB next month, so cross that off above list.

        I don’t cross things off of the list until they actually happen.

        But what announcement concerning “NB” have I not seen yet?

        Norm.

  4. Fr. Lee Kenyon has announced that Richard Harris of Fredericton Junction, New Brunswick, is to be ordained deacon and priest by Bishop ROBERT Harris on August 14th and September 11th respectively.

    The former rector of the group in Denison,TX will also be ordained this month. Patience is rewarded.
