BISHOP'S MONTHLY NEWSLETTER for January 2013

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

A Blessed Epiphany to you all!

Here is the first Monthly Newsletter of 2013.

 

National Church News

 

The Rev. Canon Anthony Morello, RIP

As most of you are no doubt aware, Canon Anthony Morello has passed to eternal life. Father Tony died early Sunday morning, January 13, 2013.
Canon Morello served as Vicar General of the Diocese of the West. He was instrumental in shepherding the parish of St. Mary of the Angels during its recent difficulties. Because of Canon Morello's efforts, St. Mary of the Angels has stabilized and has now resumed services. Canon Morello was also rector of All Saints Anglican Church in Fountain Valley, California.

A Requiem Mass will be held at All Saints Anglican Church on Wednesday, January 23 at 4:00 pm. I will celebrate the Mass and preach.

Please keep Carolyn and the Morello family in your prayers.

“Rest Eternal grant him, O Lord, and light perpetual shine upon him.”

 

St Mary of the Angels Rededication
A rededication of the parish of St. Mary of the Angels will be held at a later date. Originally scheduled for February 10, the rededication is now tentatively scheduled for early April.

 

DEUS Synod
The synod of the Diocese of the Eastern United States will be held at St. Patrick's Anglican Church in Titusville, Florida from February 19-22, 2013. An Election Synod for the new diocesan will be held as part of the synod. Should Bishop Suffragan John Vaughan be elected Bishop Ordinary, his enthronement will take place on Friday morning, February 22. Please keep Bishop Vaughan and the people of the DEUS in your prayers as they take this important step in their service to God's church.

 

International Anglican Fellowship
Please keep The International Anglican Fellowship in your prayers and your charitable giving programs. Parishes and individuals may become Sustaining Members of the IAF by giving regular monthly or annual gifts to the IAF. The Executive Director of the IAF is Erv Lischke.

As is customary at this clericus meeting, lay leaders, wives and other interested individuals are cordially invited to attend. Father Moody has also noted that attendees may choose to spend an additional “quiet” retreat day at Graymoor. Simply let Father Moody know that you would like to arrive on Wednesday, February 27.

St. Luke's Summer Camp
Our annual childrens' camp will again be held at Camp Ashmere in Hinsdale, Massachusetts. The dates are August 4-August 10. Last year's camp week was an outstanding success. Please pencil in the dates now.

 

House of Bishops and Executive Council Meetings
As mentioned in last month's newsletter, the House of Bishops and the Executive Council will meet at St. Paul's Parish in Brockton, Massachusetts. The house of Bishops will meet on Tuesday, April 23. The Executive Council will convene on April 24 – 25. Episcopal consecrations will be held on April 25 (Rochester, New Hampshire) and 27 (Brockton, Massachusetts). Orthodox Anglican bishops will attend and participate in the consecrations. This is fully consistent with the Christian practice. It is also an opportunity for Classical Anglicans to come together in unity.
