Arriving from around the country, delegates and guests of the MSJ have gathered in Hurst, Texas, at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, for General Assembly. The delegates have gathered to renew old friendships and to meet new friends of the Missionary Society of St John. A complete revision of the Rule of Life is the important work before the assembly, while worship, prayer and fellowship fill the schedule. Also before the assembled delegates is consideration of the important invitations extended to Anglicans by the both the Vatican and Metropolitan Jonah of the Orthodox Church in America.
Fr James Guill of Forward in Faith, North America will be giving the homily at this evening mass.
It has been the frequently expressed hope and fervent desire of Anglican Catholics to be enabled by some means to enter into full communion with the See of Peter whilst retaining in its integrity every aspect of their Anglican inheritance which is not at variance with the teaching of the Catholic Church.
We rejoice that the Holy Father intends now to set up structures within the Church which respond to this heartfelt longing. Forward in Faith has always been committed to seeking unity in truth and so warmly welcomes these initiatives as a decisive moment in the history of the Catholic Movement in the Church of England. Ut unum sint!
