Fr. John Hunwicke

  It's with great joy and thanksgiving that we receive the news of the priestly ordination of Fr. John Hunwicke for service in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. Fr. Hunwicke was a guest of our parish this past year, and he is one of the truly great priests coming into full Catholic communion from Anglicanism.

 As is noted on his blog, Fr. Hunwicke "was for nearly three decades at Lancing College; where he taught Latin and Greek language and literature, was Head of Theology, and Assistant Chaplain. He has served three curacies, been a Parish Priest, and Senior Research Fellow at Pusey House in Oxford."

 And now, a Catholic priest in full communion with the Holy See!
