Ordinariate Information Session At St Mary Of The Angels

In last night's e-mail:
Dear Parishioners & Friends,

Archbishop John Hepworth would be delighted if you would join in an informational session on the Ordinariate and its status, Thursday night, February 1, at 7pm in the Choir Room.

Light refreshments will be provided.

We hope to see you there.

In Christ,
Fr Kelley+

I intend to be there. Abp Hepworth is an engaging speaker, although as I've noted, he has the gift of blarney. It's worth pointing out that the choir room has a capacity of somewhere around 12 to 20, which may give a sense of the expected audience, but we'll have to see what emerges. It's fairly plain from this that the parish does not see the appellate opinion as much of an obstacle -- since the vestry continues to be recognized as the legal corporate board, it can in fact hold another parish election to leave the ACA at pretty much any time.
