Married former Anglican priest ordained for special ministry

Vaughn Treco, a husband, grandfather of two and former Anglican priest, was ordained to the Catholic diaconate and priesthood in early May with the approval of Pope Francis.

His ordination as a Catholic priest who is married is allowed as an exception to the normal requirement for celibacy.

Treco will serve within the geographic boundaries of the St. Paul and Minneapolis archdiocese as a member of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter as the priest for a community of former Anglicans.

Book Review

Why do people think differently from you about religion?

A New Generation of Catholic Writers

Why do people think differently from you about religion?

Why do some who call themselves believers not seem to believe things you believe?

Cradle Catholics who have never had a crisis of faith, never gone through a time when they didn’t go to church wouldn’t seem to have any use for a book like Faith at the Edge, edited by Angelo Matera.

This collection of commentaries is targeted for those seeking something to believe in or perhaps a spiritual home in which to land.

It contains nuggets of wisdom, insights into the mystery of God that will nurture the faith of those looking for a place to call home as well as those who long ago found a faith where they belong.
