Episcopal Visit

Today Msgr Michael Olson, bishop of Fort Worth, visited the Ordinariate community (St. Timothy's) at St. Mary's church. He Confirmed half a dozen candidates and received them into the fold of the Church. Fr. Christopher Stainbrook celebrated solemn Mass in the Anglican Use with the bishop attending much as a bishop would attend the old rite in Missa coram episcopo. The traditional rites of receiving a bishop at the door were also used and the Angelus was sung after the Mass. Always a joyous occasion when a successor to the Apostles visits his flock.
