All of the clergy and faithful of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter are invited to Houston on February 1st and 2nd next year to celebrate the episcopal ordination of Bishop Steven Lopes. A prayer vigil, festival and luncheon will be held in advance of the ordination which will take place at 7.00 p.m. at the Co-cathedral of the Sacred Heart in downtown Houston.
This festival coincides with the annual meeting of the Ordinaries of the three Personal Ordinariates, so the guest speakers at the Festival will be Mgr. Keith Newton of the Ordinariate of our Lady of Walsingham from the United Kingdom and Msgr. Harry Entwistle of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, Australia.
