"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

"How Can We Sing The Lord's Song?"

I highly commend this Colloquium on the future of Anglican Catholicism, which will be hosted by St. Vincent's during the first weekend in June. Dr Peter Kreeft of Boston College, the noted Catholic apologist, will be the keynote speaker. And a "Who's Who" of Anglo-Catholic luminaries will be attending and speaking, including Bishops Urwin, Wantland, Parsons, Iker, and Ackerman and the Rev. Dr. Geoffrey Kirk. There will be a Solemn High Mass and two Solemn Evensongs with Benediction, with preachers on each occasion. This is surely a fine investment of $50, which includes your meals. Sign up today!

Thanks for the comment over on my blog. I've e-mailed a few friends and I'm trying to get a group together to come over to the cathedral. Nothing is certain yet. I'll let you know if I'll be able to make it and I'll look for you.

No, I have not entered into any formal discernment process for ordination. I have not even asked about it. I figure that I have to wait until I finally graduate from college. Is that accurate?

Thanks again.

Well, I am not sure about your diocese, but my impression is that you could probably enter the process in your senior year. Here in Fort Worth it takes only a few months, but in a place like Chicago it can take up to two years! So depending on your local practice, getting started early may or may not make sense. Some of our seminarians here are pretty much fresh out of college when they start Nashotah House, while others are a year or two in "the world" before returning to their studies.

Good luck on getting a group together. I look forward to meeting you.
