Blessed People of our God,
Is this a shop or is this a Church ? I gathered that it is both. The picture represents the Anglican Catholic Church of Saint Alban in Salford, Manchester , England. What a wonderful idea – this is an excellent idea for Church planting and Mission work.
My former Parish Priest in the Australian Anglican Church always told us that ” we as Anglican Catholics are not good at evangelizing”. That might be true in some cases , but evangelizing are we called to do. I recall discussing this idea with my own Bishop, Bishop Brian of Iverach ,who is based in Sydney and it is something I am going to plan for the provincial Victorian town of Bendigo. We don’t have to have a grand cathedral in order to preach Christ Crucified. Then we are in a situation that we might not always be heard, but we will definitely been seen.
Bishop Brian runs a Mission from Redfern in Sydney, they are strongly evangelical.Whenever I discuss something with him he says ” God is blessing” and that is how is see my calling on this very day.
The peace of the Lord be with you.
