Pentecost at Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

What a glorious celebration of Pentecost today at Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ottawa, where Fr. Doug Hayman welcomed three new adult members into the Catholic Church—Jonathan, Nancy and Daniel—and two children, Noa and Michael received their First Holy Communion.

Our tiny church was packed with visitors and well-wishers this morning, many from the Augustine College community, a good representation from Communion and Liberation as well, from the Eastern Catholic Church, from the Anglican Network in Canada.

Zachary our thurifer chanted the lesson for the first time and did a wonderful job.  Father Kipling Cooper delivered the homily, which was simple and beautiful.

    This is awesome news!

    This is even more awesome — especially the visitors from the Anglican Network in Canada (ANIC). I’m hopeful that the visitors from ANIC felt very much “at home” with your liturgy. If so, it is likely that some might consider coming to the ordinariate — especially with the Anglican Communion not officially recognizing the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), of which ANIC is the Canadian affiliate, as an official member province and the troubled relations between ANIC and the Anglican Church in Canada (ACC), which is still officially a member province of the Anglican Communion in spite of its abandonment of orthodox biblical Christian belief and adoption of heterodox practices.

    I’m also curious as to the connection between all of the groups that you listed and your community or those being received into full communion. Can you elaborate on this?

    Norm.
