So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Meeting of the Clergy of the Deanery of St John the Baptist (Ordinariate in Canada)

This past week, May 18, 19 and 20, the Fellowship of Blessed John Henry Newman hosted a meeting of clergy of the Deanery of St John the Baptist (Ordinariate in Canada) at Our Lady of Fatima Church, the host parish for the Fellowship.

For those of us fairly new to the Ordinariate experience, itself being relatively new on the scene, i.e., those of us reverts, recent converts and pre-Ordinariate converts and cradlers (and a few Extraordinary Formers), the sound of the gathered former Anglican clergy raising their voices in praise of God, raising the roof it seemed, was a treat-and-a-half. Clearly, a significant aspect of the Anglican patrimony is clergymen who are able to sing confidently in three and four part harmony.

Mr. Michael Trolly (Toronto) provided excellent accompaniment for Mattins and Evensong services. Mr Scott Vannan and FBJHN schola members provided music for the Saturday Mass.
