“Becoming One” gathering planned as face of the US Anglican Ordinarate emerges
CA. In addition there are the All Saints Sisters of the Poor in Cantonville, MD, and a several hermits who have shown interest in uniting with the Ordinatiate.
Common communal prayer will be the foundation and focal point of the "Becoming One" gathering. There will also be structured presentations designed to provide needed information and answer burning questions.
"As we get closer to the establishment of the Ordinariate for this country," Fr. Phillips explained. "I think it's important that we take time to get to know one another, and especially to spend some time praying with each other."
The "Becoming One" gathering will be anchored in prayer including Catholic Mass according to Anglican Usage, Morning Prayer and Evensong, with various Anglican liturgies providing the spiritual structure for discussion panels and information sessions designed to help shed some light on the progress of the formal establishment of the Anglican Ordinariate in the United States and the melding together of various Anglicans in one ecclesial Catholic family.
Helping to provide some of the answers is the be Fr. Hurd, who will be representing Cardinal-designate Wuerl at the "Becoming One" gathering, and who should have some basic answers to fundamental questions and concerns.
Fr. Phillips is pleased about the coming together of so many Catholics and Anglicans from so many diverse Anglican traditions, including three Traditional Anglican Communion bishops. TAC bishops who are planning on attending include: Archbishop Louis Falk, former primate of the Traditional Anglican Communion and currently president of the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church in America; Bishop Louis Campese, bishop of the Anglican Church in America Diocese of the Eastern United States; and Bishop David Moyer, the Anglican Church in America bishop for the Armed Forces.
"This is a time when we can begin to bind ourselves together, looking to the day when we will be one family in the Ordinariate," Fr. Phillips wrote. "This should be a marvelous time for all of us. It will be great to pray together, to eat together, and to share what wonders God is doing in our midst."
Fr. Phillips requests that those who are interested in attending the "Becoming One" gathering contact him directly so that an accurate nose count can be taken to help Our Lady of the Atonement properly prepare for seating, liturgy and meals.
