For those of you who are interested in learning more about Anglicanorum coetibus, the recently-promulgated Apostolic Constitution for Anglicans, or if you know someone who might be, here is an opportunity. On Friday, Jan. 22 (the day of the March for Life), at 6:30pm, Fr. Eric Bergman, a Pastoral Provision priest from Scranton, PA and Chaplain of the Anglican Use Society, will officiate at an Evening Prayer service at Old St. Mary's in downtown Washington, D.C. (near Chinatown) and then speak afterwards.
All who are interested are welcome to attend and participate, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. (This is not a Mass; Evening Prayer is a component of the Daily Office.)
