Update on the Nov. 2019 Symposium

I had posted earlier about plans for a Symposium in Rome Nov. 4-8, 2019 in Rome to mark the 10th Anniversary of Anglicanorum coetibus.

Plans have changed.

There is a strong likelihood Blessed John Henry Newman will be canonized next year—there has been a second miracle I hear—but we will not know for sure until June and, if it happens, it is likely he will be canonized in October 2019.    October in Rome is a lot nicer than November, but the late notice in June would give little opportunity to plan anything large scale.

The Ordinaries will be discussing an alternative plan, perhaps something like a pilgrimage in the spring of 2020 that would possibly include spots in England as well as  a trip to Rome.

This is the Altar of the Chair of St. Peter in St. Peter’s Basilica where we had hoped to celebrate one of three Divine Worship liturgies during that week.

I apologize for posting on this earlier, then taking the post down, as some key people had not been notified yet of the decision, thus my posting here was precipitous.

I do not know much yet, but I will keep you posted as I learn more.
