Houston Chancery of POCSP to be dedicated Feb. 1
The dedication of the Chancery of The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter is scheduled for Sunday, February 1, 2015, at 4 p.m. The Chancery is located behind and adjacent to Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Church at 7730 Westview Drive in Houston. The dedication will begin with the service of Choral Evensong in the parish.
Earlier that day, Mass will be celebrated at 11:15 a.m. at Our Lady of Walsingham in the presence of His Eminence William Cardinal Levada, who will also officiate at the formal service of dedication.
Our Lady of Walsingham is the principal parish of the Ordinariate, which was established on January 1, 2012, by Pope Benedict XVI as a vehicle for bringing Anglicans and Episcopalians in the United States and Canada into full communion with the Catholic Church. Our Holy Father Pope Francis has embraced and expanded the mission of the Ordinariate to take part fully in the New Evangelization of the Church.
The Ordinariate includes parishes, communities, clergy, and fellowships throughout the United States and Canada, under the leadership of Monsignor Jeffrey Steenson, our Ordinary. Companion Ordinariates were also established by the Holy See in England and in Australia.
