Former Anglican Catholic Church of Canada (ACCC) Metropolitan Bishop Peter Wilkinson will be ordained to the transitional diaconate on Dec. 6th at 7 p.m. at Victoria’s Queen of Peace parish.
Victoria Bishop Richard Gagnon will ordain Wilkinson to the Catholic priesthood on Dec. 8, 10:00 a.m. at St. Andrew’s Cathedral on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. From what I have been hearing for weeks now, Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson will be preaching at this joyous event. I understand a number of my readers have already bought plane tickets.
We had hoped that former ACCC Suffragan Bishop for Central Canada Carl Reid would be ordained on the same day here in Ottawa.
This ordination has been postponed, probably into late January. When I have firm details I will let you know as there are many in the Ottawa area who will want to celebrate with us.
