THE P RTAL February 2018 Page 17 News from the Ordinariate Epiphany at MPB O n 7th January 2018 the founder members of the London (South) Ordinariate group gathered alongside and those who have joined the growing Parish of the Most Precious Blood to celebrate the Epiphany and the fifth anniversary of the Parish being placed in the care of the Ordinariate.   MPB was the first parish to be placed in the care of the Ordinariate under the terms of a contract and was followed a little while later by the Church in Warwick Street. Monsignor Newton joined members of the Ordinariate for a celebratory lunch afterwards and expressed his appreciation for the energy and enthusiasm which Fr Christopher and members of the group had put into the Ordinariate project.  This collaboration with the Archdiocese shows what can be achieved when the Ordinariate is entrusted with the care of a parish and given the freedom to develop a distinctive ministry which is both fully Catholic and true to the vision of Pope Benedict XVI.
