Good News from the North

posted Oct 28, 2013, 8:37 AM by Rochester Ordinariate
The four men who have had their rescripts signed by the Holy Father, Pope Francis are Douglas Hayman and Kipling Cooper (The Annunication, Ottawa), John Hodgins (St Thomas More, Toronto), and James Tilley (The Good Shepherd, Oshawa). Colin O’Rourke is now a seminarian of the Diocese of Calgary, and is currently spending a year at a seminary in the United States. I am hopeful that he will be ordained priest next summer, and have faculties for the Ordinariate. We continue to await good news from the Congregation of Divine Faith in Rome for Michael Shier (OLW, Vancouver), David Skelton (St Benedict, Edmonton), and Richard Harris (Our Lady of the Sign, Fredericton Junction). Praise God for the good news from Rome last week.

Thanks to Paul for passing along the (now public) news.
