The 2007 Anglican Use Conference

The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., will be the site of the 2007 Anglican Use Conference beginning on Thursday, May 31st and ending on Saturday, June 2nd. Speakers on the topic of “The Catholic Priesthood” will include Fr. Peter Geldard, Catholic Chaplain at the University of Kent at Canterbury and the former General Secretary of the English Church Union; Linda Poindexter, former Episcopal cleric for thirteen years, and Catholic convert since 1999; and Fr. Charles Connor, Ph.D., Rector of St. Peter’s Cathedral in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and author of Meditations on the Catholic Priesthood.

There will be workshops discussing the establishment and growth of Anglican Use parishes in the Catholic Church, and the various liturgies (including Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception) will be celebrated according to The Book of Divine Worship, which is the approved liturgical Use for the Pastoral Provision established by the Servant of God, Pope John Paul II.
