Ordinariate lay conference

Following on from last years successful Lay Conference, the Pastoral Council and the Deans are keen to develop further occasions for the laity of the Ordinariate to come together and are planning one day gatherings in each deanery.

The laity from the South-East are being invited to spend a day at The Church of the Precious Blood, O’Meara Street, London SE1 1TA on Saturday 21stat 11am.  The church is a short walk from London Bridge. It would be good for every group to be represented.   

The day will include a time to catch up with National and Deanery news; Mass; an opportunity to see and hear about the splendid renovation work which has been carried out in Precious Blood.   Christopher Woodman (our financial secretary) will be joining us and will explain the state of our finances and answer questions; he will also welcome the opportunity to meet with group treasurers who are present.

A Sandwich lunch will be provided and the day will end at 4pm.  Please register (for catering purposes) by e mail to d.a.waller@btinternet.com

Yours in Christ

Fr David Waller – Dean of the South East.

1 thought on “Ordinariate lay conference

  1. What have these conferences actually achieved?
    The Ordinariate needs:
    – a Bishop to ordain his own priests and celebrate the Chrism Mass. An ‘Ordinary’ causes confusion (esp a married one) to most Diocesan Catholics.
    – to use the Divine Worship Missal exclusively. There are many options including versus populum and excluding the prayers at the foot of the Altar so in some ways you can have a similar Mass to the Novus Ordo but different enough to have a USP
    – it’s own churches. The sspx/Anglican Catholic Church have aquired buildings yet aren’t wealthy. It is better to buy and convert an old community hall and fill it with tat (…bring back Brian Brindley??) than to borrow a minimalist 1960s Diocesan church each Sunday at 4pm.
    – a decent printed magazine with (shock, horror) photos of the Liturgy. If my local Anglican church can produce a parish mag which is as interesting as a conversation with Bishop Mullally surely we can have something? Fr Ed could fill at least 5 pages a month!
    – It’s own servers guild
    – a decent website like the LMS with Mass centres on an interactive map. Also a better Twitter account with photos

    People at the moment do not get the Ordinariate vision. What is it??? Please??
