To the St. Alban fellowship and friends,

There is important news today from Houston and the Vatican about our corporate life.  Pope Francis has appointed Rev. Monsignor Steven J. Lopes as the first bishop of the US Ordinariate.  Monsignor Steenson has a letter on the CSP Ordinariate website where he explains that he requested a bishop for the Ordinariate to help insure stability and permanence.

Monsignor - Bishop elect - Lopes has been closely involved in the formation of the Ordinariate, as well as publication of Divine Worship as our closest contact in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.  

I encourage you to look at the Ordinariate's website:  they have many articles explaining what is going on.

Thank you, Monsignor Steenson for your service, and ...

There will be press-conference today in Houston about this important event.
