I Told You So: Our Lady of Walsingham

I said that the title Our Lady of Walsingham would be coming up often this year! When I posted the story about Blessed John Storey/Story, a reader posted a comment including a link to Our Lady of Walsingham & St John the Evangelist Ordinariate Group-Calgary, mentored by Father Michael Storey!

The Ordinariate Group of Our Lady and St John is made up of those who are currently Anglicans, as well as Catholics who were formerly Anglican, and a number of Catholics who are married to Anglicans. With the loving care of our appointed Priest Mentor, the Catholic parish priest of Brooks, Alberta, Fr Michael Storey, we are together praying for, and looking forward to, the establishment of a Personal Ordinariate in Canada.

The majority of us belong to the Parish of St John the Evangelist, Calgary, a parish founded in 1905 as part of what was then the Church of England in Canada (since 1955, the Anglican Church of Canada). Our Group meets at different locations on a monthly basis for fellowship, prayer and study, but we also gather on Sundays and throughout the week as part of the regular worshipping life of St John’s, under the pastoral care and leadership of its Priest-in-Charge, Fr Lee Kenyon, who was a priest of the Church of England until he came to St John’s in April 2009.

Also, here is the news about the dedication of a shrine to Our Lady of Walshingham in Houston Texas--"It was hot, it was humid, and it was wonderful." Our Lady of Walshingham is an Anglican Use parish there.
