Getting closer: Anglican Use Evening Prayer

From TPC reader, Dr. Ben Vallejo...

An update...
Some updates on the Anglican Use in the Philippines. Our request is now with the Bishop of Cubao. Also we have found a friendly, sympathetic Roman Catholic parish priest who is of the "High Church" kind. He celebrates the Mass of Paul VI with dignity and formality and conducts the Roman Rite vespers in his church in a way that will make Anglo-Catholics ecstatic! (I can't find the right adjective!) The Psalms are reverently said and the Latin hymns sung properly. We hope that he becomes our chaplain someday.

I told the Pinoy Anglo-Catholics [Like the term!] and they plan to attend his Masses!

Our Lady of the Visitation of Walsingham, Pray for us to God!

And thank you Mr Pinoy Catholic for your prayers. [As always...] All is now with Bp Ongtioco.

To paraphrase the late Cardinal Sin, "Time to storm heaven with our prayers."

This time... for Bishop Honesto Ongtioco...


  1. Hi,

    I would like to know when and where the said priest celebrate.

    Thank you.


  2. I will keep you posted Joel. I do not have the final details yet. In the meantime, pray that Bishop Ongtioco approves of this.
