THE P RTAL February 2018 Page 3 P ortal Comment The Blogosphere  Will Burton explores P eregrinations - peregrinus-peregrinus. blogspot.co.uk - Canadian Catholic Perspectives and Reflections by members of the Personal Ordinariate of The Chair of St Peter Hollywood - The Capital of the Dictatorship of Relativism The blatant hypocrisy of the Hollywood establishment - http://bit.ly/803-1 - blazes across screens in their award shows before the eyes of children as these narcissistic egomaniacs celebrate themselves.  They are overpaid denizens of filth who presume to judge those who don’t line up with their ‘liberal values’ on abortion, euthanasia, etc. while being the purveyors of gratuitous violence, smut, and foul language under the dictatorship of relativism.  It is simply sickening to see such unashamed political ego-stroking aimed at the destruction of the family and faith in the celebration of darkness. Posted by Peregrinus Toronto on 10th January 2018. At Antique Richborough, Mgr Edwin Barnes reports on an answer to prayer. He says, “After a Novena of prayer, the Salisbury Ordinariate decided to try something new. We need to reach out to Christians of other denominations; and so a trial run was held last week at our Pastor’s home. It went well, but with only a very small number present because of the short notice.” As it was the week of the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity; they decided to invite people to Chateau Barnes to celebrate St Paul’s Conversion. They included an ‘RSVP’ slip. A dozen or so promised to attend; and the largest room will comfortably accommodate only about eight. A trifle packed? Ignatius: his Conclave and marymagdalen.blogspot. co.uk, both had things to say about the Holy Father conducting a wedding at thirty thousand feet. While Auntie Joanna at joannabogle.blogspot.co.uk has been championing the numbers attending the Most Precious Blood, Borough, London Bridge. It is an encouraging story. The Northern Cross Newspaper http://bit.ly/802- 2 at has a near full-page advert for T he P ortal . Now that is worth a good read! As if that were not enough, the Friends of the Ordinariate at friendsoftheordinariate.org.uk display the latest edition of their excellent Newsletter. At the beginning of February, the Manchester Ordinariate Mission will move to a new home at St Joseph’s Heywood to St Margaret Mary, New Moston. The site includes a church, hall and presbytery and the Bishop of Salford believes it will ‘form a fitting base for building up the worship and other activities of the Ordinariate community’.  The main Sunday Mass will be in the Ordinariate use but Fr Starkie, the Ordinariate Mission Pastor, will also assume pastoral care for the Diocesan Catholics of the parish and make arrangements for a Sunday Mass in the Ordinary form and their other sacramental and pastoral needs.  Fr Neil Chatfield, Pastor of the Eastbourne Ordinariate Mission (and a member of the Editorial Board of T he P ortal ) is to take on the additional role of Parish Priest of Christ the King, Langney, in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton.  Fr Chatfield hopes that this will provide opportunities for the greater development of the Ordinariate mission in the area.  An early example of this is that the 5pm Saturday evening Vigil Mass at Christ the King will now be an additional Ordinariate Use Mass alongside the continuing celebrations at 4pm on Sunday at St Agnes and the 7.30pm Monday evening Mass at  Our Lady of Ransom.  Elsewhere in this edition of T he P ortal you will find news about the Ordinariate Lay Conference at Worth Abbey in August. It is hoped that every Ordinariate group in the UK will be represented by one or two delegates. Make sure your Group or Mission is not left out. The Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham’s Chrism Mass will be at Our Lady of the Assumption & St Gregory, Warwick Street, London, on Monday 26th March at 11.30am celebrated by HE Archbishop Edward Adams, the Apostolic Nuncio.
