Metropolitan Jerome preaches during Solemn Mass on the Octave Day of St Wilfrid, founder and heavenly patron of the bishopric of Selsey

Lynmouth, UK: Between Sunday 18th October to Thursday 22nd October, clergy of the bishopric of Selsey joined their Ordinary, Metropolitan Jerome OSJV in Chapter. Accommodation was provided courtesy of Canon Emilio Tundidor-Suarez OSJV at The Rock House hotel and by gracious permission of the Anglican Bishop of Exeter, the daily round of liturgical Offices, private Masses and Conventual Solemn Mass took place in the parish church of St John the Baptist, Lynmouth. During the week, the clergy enjoyed addresses and facilitated discussions concerning the pastoral application of the priestly life by Fr Christopher Buckley CMP.

The Chapter enabled clergy from all over England to come together in prayer and in fellowship and provided the opportunity for both personal interviews with the Metropolitan as well as the more formal consultative process of a Chapter with His Grace. Resulting from the discussions of the formal Chapter itself, the Metropolitan acceded to a petition seeking permission to offer liturgically the Sarum Use for Mass and the development of closer working relationships in mission with other Christian denominations sympathetic to the faith and ethos of the Old Roman Catholic Church. A report was also received from the Chicago Synod courtesy of Metropolitan William and shared with the Chapter.

All who attended very much appreciated the opportunity to gather in such a beautiful location as the small seaside harbour village of Lynmouth and the comfortable surroundings of The Rock House hotel and the very great privilege of worshiping in St John’s church. A vote of thanks was made by Chapter for the facilitation and company of Fr Buckley, the hospitality of Canon Tundidor-Suarez and the generosity of the Bishop of Exeter and the people and parish of Lynmouth in the use of their church.
