2015 Ordinariate Festival
Tuesday 22nd September 2015

The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham held its Annual Festival at The Church of the Most Precious Blood, London Bridge, Westminster Cathedral and the Cathedral Hall over the weekend of 18th to 20th September 2015.

Members, who came from far and wide, included two who had travelled over seven thousand miles from Jakarta! to be present.

Fr Gerard Sheehan of Opus Dei gave a most interesting talk about the position of the Ordianriate in the Catholic Church. He drew on his experience in Opus Dei and the words of Pope Emeritus Benedict and His Holiness Pope Francis among others.

On Saturday over two hundred Ordinariate members packed into Westminster Cathedral Hall to hear reports from various Ordinariate activities. These included the newly formed group in Cardiff; the Ordinariate church building on Torbay; and the work at Precious Blood, London Bridge. They also had a report of the finances and the plans to for some Ordinariate young people to attend the forthcoming World Youth Day in Poland.

Archbishop Joseph Augustine Di Noia O.P. of the CDF was the principal celebrant at Mass in the Cathedral. This was celebrated using the newly published Ordinariate Divine Worship.

After lunch Archjbishop Di Noia gave the members some idea of the way the various Ordinariates had been set up. The day concluded with a "Charge" delivered by the Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, The Right Revd Mgr Keith Newton.

On Sunday, those members who were able to stay in London, assembled for Sung Mass at the church of Our Lady and Saint Gregory, Warwick Street.

The text of Fr Gerard Sheehan's talk is available here.

You can listen HERE to all the reports given on Saturday as well as Archbishop Di Noia's address and Mgr Keith Newton's 'Charge'.
