Last night the Redbridge and Havering Ordinariate Exploratory Group met for Mass and the continuation of the Evangelium Course.
Our next meeting scheduled for the 4th April will not now take place as several people want to attend the Redbridge Deanery Synod at which the issue of Women Bishops is to be discussed. Instead there will be a Mass at St. Augustine’s at 7.30 p.m.  for those who would like to attend.
The next full meeting will be 19th April at 7.30 p.m. for Mass followed by the Evangelium Course.
We are very please that we will meet with Monsignor Keith Newton at the Church of The Assumption, Manford Way, Hainault at 7.30 p.m. on the 7th June. The service will take the form of a Holy Hour including Benediction followed by a meeting in the Church Hall. We are very grateful to Father Jean-Claude Selvini, Parish Priest of the Church of The Assumption, for this kind invitation.

It was announce on Thursday 17th May that Pope Benedict XVI has elevated Father Keith Newton to the rank of Protonotary Apostolic and Father John Broadhurst and Father Andrew Burnham to the rank of Prelate of Honour. This will mean that all three will be known as Monsignor. We offer them many congratulations.

From the Tablet website:
Hundreds of Anglicans have formally left the Church of England and today start their preparation to join the British ordinariate. Today, Ash Wednesday, is the deadline for groups wishing to join the Catholic Church via the new structure who wish to be received on Easter Day. Research by The Tablet found that at least 600 laity are planning to join the ordinariate and latest predictions suggest they will be joined by up to 60 clergy. Among them is Fr Ian Hellyer, a father of eight, from Bovey Tracey in Devon. It has also emerged that a church in Euston has been offered to the ordinariate. A spokesman for the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales said that St Anne’s, Laxton Place, which is currently closed, is being considered for the central London group. He added that a principal church for the Ordinariate had yet to be identified
