My thanks to Fr. Bartus for inviting me to contribute to the Anglican Patrimony blog. Before I jump into the blogging fray, courtesy dictates that I share a brief introduction.
I had the honor of being the first priest ordained for the Personal Ordinate of the Chair of Saint Peter (CSP from here on out) on June 2nd, 2012, by Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Mobile, Alabama. I am the administrator of The Society of St. Gregory, the Ordinariate group for Mobile and Dothan, Alabama.
While I may have been the first priest ordained for CSP, at 31 years of age, my experience is dwarfed by that of most of my brother priests. However, as a converted atheist, I like to think I have a unique perspective on the Ordinariates…
There’s more here.
Go say hello and do give Fr Venuti a warm welcome.
