Mgr Newton celebrates fourth anniversary of Ordinariate at Most Precious Blood, Borough
Friday 16th January 2015

Mgr Keith and Mrs Gill Newton joined members of the London (South) Ordinariate at a celebration on Thursday (Jan 15th) to mark the fourth anniversary of the establishment of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

For Mgr Newton, this was a special celebration - the anniversary of his ordination as a priest in full communion with the Catholic Church, at Westminster Cathedral in 2011.

Evensong and Mass at Most Precious Blood Church, The Borough - concelebrated with the rector, Fr Christopher Pearson and Fr Peter Andrews - were followed by a celebration dinner at the Royal Oak in Tabard Street, famous for its associations with Chaucer's Canterbury pilgrims.

Toasts were raised to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who established the Ordinariate, and to Fr Keith and Gill. Thanks to a generous donation, the cost of the dinner was covered, and Fr Christopher invited donations from the 24 guests for the Torbay Ordinariate (buying a former Methodist church at Chelston, Torquay). The proceeds of the Epiphany Party hosted by Geoffrey Kirk combined with this evening's donations made a total of £1,000 for Torbay. All signed a letter of greetings to be sent off with a cheque.

The Parish of the Most Precious Blood, covering the historic district along the Thames by London Bridge, was given into Ordinariate care two years ago.
