Bp Lopes Speaks: “Meet the Ordinariate”

Our dear Bishop recently made an Episcopal Visitation to the Fellowship of Saint Alban near Rochester New York. During his time with our fellow members Bishop Lopes gave an address entitled MEET THE ORDINARIATE. His talk was wide-ranging, covering into story of how the Ordinariate arose from the experience of ecumenism post-Vatican II; what it is and the nature of its distinctive liturgy, experience of worship, and fellowship; and, as we move forward, the possibilities for it and the Church Universal. Bishop Lopes’ style is distinctly informal and often amusing; those who have not yet had the pleasure of meeting him personally will be able to form a very good idea of who he is and what he is like after watching this half-hour video. Many thanks to parishioner Ed Finglas for this excellent new resource to our attention.
