Ordination of Father Alex Hill, a former anglican

I am glad to find news of a friend and former student of mine who was ordained to the priesthood yesterday. His ordination is also significant as it is one of many that have taken place over the years and are still about to take place of men who have become Catholics and who wish to serve in the already established dioceses of England and Wales, and other dioceses. See Jeffrey Steel's blog de cura animarum. Jeffrey also was once an anglican priest.


  1. It is such a joy to hear of people "coming home."

    Yesterday I was at the priestly ordination of Burnham, Broadhurst and Newton to the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

    These 3 exAnglican Bishop's are leading the way for, what I hope will be, the "way out" for disgruntled Anglo Catholics.

  2. And we at Our Lady Help of Christians Catholic Church in West Byfleet, Surrey heard today that Father Alex Hill will be heading our way in May to continue the fabulous work of Monsignor Malachy, who is retiring from his parish. Although I am personally very saddened to loose such a community activist, we are looking forward to a new chapter in our parish and welcome Father Hill and his family with open arms. God bless
