(Corrected and updated) I’ve just received news that eight priests will be Ordained at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, East Melbourne on Saturday, 8th September 2012 at 10.00 a.m., four for the Archdiocese of Melbourne and four for the Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross.
With Archbishop Denis Hart, The Very Rev Fr Harry Entwistle, +Ordinary, announced today the names of the candidates from the Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross as follows: James Grant, Neil Fryer, Ramsay Williams and Christopher Seton.
The candidates from the Archdiocese of Melbourne are: Andrew McCarter, Benneth Osuagwu, Jerome Santamaria and Kevin Williams.
This is terrific and highly encouraging news. Our prayers are with all the candidates.
I was initially confused by earlier reports, because this ordination will be for more than one jurisdiction. It is an interesting decision to ordain the Anglicans along with this years secular clergy for the Melbourne Archdiocese. I would be interested in your take on this decision.
