On June 8th our parish administrator, Mr. James Tilley and his assistant, David Garrett went to Ottawa and met Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson. Also present at the meeting was Carl Reid, former ACCC bishop, Kipling Cooper and Doug Hayman.
The main purpose of the Ordinary’s visit to Canada was to meet with Cardinal Collins of Toronto, the Papal Nuncio to Canada and Archbishop Prendergast of Ottawa to discuss liturgical matters and the process of setting up the Canadian Deanery under the patronage of St. John the Baptist.
Carl Reid has made assurances that all is proceeding well for our various sodalities to join the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.
Most importantly the Ordinary indicated that he hopes the process of priestly formation for former ACCC priests will begin late in August with anticipated ordinations prior to Christmas. This is the best case scenarion.
The rest of Carl Reid’s remarks can be read in the July issue of “the Annunciator” at this link http://annunciationofthebvm.org/
Please pray for our sodality and the other sodalities as we move forward in this process.
