Mid-Atlantic Gathering of Ordinariate-bound Anglicans & Catholics

Ordinariate-bound Anglicans, Catholics (and those who are merely curious) are invited to attend several events during and leading up to this year's March for Life (Jan. 23 and 24).  Fr. Christopher Phillips has posted something about it on the Anglo-Catholic blog.

At 4:00pm on Sunday, Jan. 23, Fr. Eric Bergman, a Pastoral Provision priest and pastor of the St. Thomas More Society in Scranton, PA, will celebrate an Anglican Use Mass at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church in downtown Baltimore.  Nearby Mt. Calvary Church has very generously offered their parish hall for a reception afterward.  Mt. Calvary is the Episcopal Church whose congregation voted overwhelmingly last October to leave ECUSA and become Catholic.  See my post about it here.  This will be an opportunity to meet other like-minded Catholics & Anglicans and to find out more about what is happening around the mid-Atlantic region related to the eventual formation of an Ordinariate in the US.

On Monday, Jan. 24, there will be an opportunity to march together at the March for Life on the National Mall under a banner which proclaims, “Thank you, Holy Father, for Anglicanorum Coetibus!”  We will meet at 1:00 pm at the corner of 7th St. and Independence Avenue, SW (just west of the Air and Space Museum).  Click here for a map.
