A New Novice
The Dominican Order of The Old Catholic Church of North America, The Order of Preachers, OC, is delighted to announce Fr. Bryan Wolf’s advancement to the Novitiate. Bryan has worked and studied diligently for the past year, and has completed his Postulancy. Amazingly enough, he has been working on his Novitiate projects simultaneously with his Postulancy studies, and will be professing his Simple Vows in a few months! Join us in congratulation Fr. Bryan in this major step, and do please continue to keep him in your prayers as he continues this journey.
A New Home
In recent weeks, the Order of Preachers, Reformed, has struggled through a time of great dismay and difficulty. We know that without death there can be no resurrection. And, just as the angel came down and troubled the waters at Bethsaida so that those surrounding the pool could be healed, so it is with us. Throughout our troubles and distress, God has been leading us to where we need to be, and where we may serve Him best. Under the guidance and loving hands of the Most Rev. Aaron Edmund Cass and The Right Rev. Gregory Godsey, the Order of Preachers, Reformed has become The Order of Preachers, Old Catholic, and we are now the Dominican Order of The Old Catholic Church of North America.
We look forward to a new and stronger ministry in our new home, and we will, indeed, serve the Lord with gladness and singleness of heart. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.
