From Saul Keeton, a follower of The Anglo-Catholic:
Fr. Prentice Dean has asked me to alert all of you that tomorrow (sorry for the late notice!) Our Lady of Martyrs Anglican Use Society is holding an hour of adoration and prayer before the Most Blessed Sacrament on Thursday, April 14th between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. at The Church of the Assumption at 1227 7th Avenue North, in Nashville.
This hour of prayer was proposed by Fr. Christopher Philips, pastor of Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church in San Antonio, Texas [Ed. Actually, if I am not mistaken, one of our most avid commentors, Sean Reed, orginated the idea.]. The general intentions are: 1) for the Holy Father; 2) for Anglican clergy and postulants, for the encouragement and strengthening of their faith, particularly when faced with uncertainty; and 3) for the laity, for their encouragement and strengthening of their faith. An Ordinariate already has been established for England and Wales; however, Anglicans and Catholics in other parts of the world are waiting (with varying degrees of patience) for the establishment of Ordinariates in our respective countries.
Fr. Dean encourages all those who are interested in growing the full, visible communion of the Catholic Church and supportive of the the Ordinariate to come by The Church of the Assumption during the lunch hour, for whatever time you can spare, to say a prayer for the timely establishment of Ordinariates in the United States, Canada and Australia.
In addition, this month our customary meeting time for Solemn Evensong & Benediction, the fourth Sunday of the month, falls on the April 24th, Easter Sunday. Because Easter will be a busy day for all of us and our families, we will not hold Solemn Evensong & Benediction that day. We will resume our monthly meetings on Sunday, May 22nd at 5:00 p.m.
