A reminder that the second lecture, in our special series to mark the Canonisation of Saint John Henry Newman and a decade since the announcement of the Ordinariate, takes place tomorrow evening, Wednesday 23rd October. The talks follow the theme of the ‘Our Father’ and so, following on from Fr. Holden’s talk on ‘Our Father who art in heaven’, Fr. Hunwicke will help us consider ‘hallowed be thy name’.
Low Mass at 7pm, refreshments at 7:30pm and the talk itself at 8pm.
The guest speaker for this second address is the ever delightful Fr. John Hunwicke a founder members of the Ordinariate. In Anglican days he was, for nearly three decades, a master at Lancing College in Sussex; where he taught Latin and Greek, was Head of Theology, and also served pastorally as an Assistant Chaplain. As an Anglican he also served as Parish Priest in Oxford and was Senior Research Fellow at Pusey House. He has written many articles and regularly takes on the herculean task of producing an Ordo- the annual liturgical calendar setting out the feasts, festivals and rules for the Church year.
In 2011, Fr Hunwicke entered into full communion with the See of St Peter as part of the first wave of the Ordinariate. His blog, which is in equal parts intellectually rigorous and deliciously humorous has won him a devoted following across the world. It is a great pleasure to welcome him back to Saint Anselm’s. Do please make every effort to be present and give him the support he deserves. Any offerings of cakes and biscuits gratefully accepted.
