Mass for the Third Anniversary of the Anglican Use Community of St Gregory the Great in Massachusetts, September 3rd

The Anglican Ordinariate community of St Gregory the Great will be have a special Mass for its third Feast of Title and Dedication at St Patrick's Parish in Stoneham, Massachusetts on September 3rd. It promises to be particularly beautiful, see the poster below or go to their website for more information,



On another but connected note, some readers may remember that I featured the commissioning of chalice and paten by the community which was made in silver. The original article was here. This set has just been given an award by the journal Faith and Form in conjunction with the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture. The designer and maker of the set, silversmith Vincent Hawley will be presented with the award at the May 2016 National Convention of the American Institute of Architects in Philadelphia, PA. His website is Congratulations Vincent!

It is great to see an Anglican Use community flourishing like this!


I'm trying not to think of Danny Kaye...the chalice with the palace has the wine which is fine....:) No sorry, I couldn't avoid it...

My book the Way of Beauty is available from Angelico Press and Amazon.

JAY W. RICHARDS, Editor of the Stream and Lecturer at the Business School of the Catholic University of America said about it: “In The Way of Beauty, David Clayton offers us a mini-liberal arts education. The book is a counter-offensive against a culture that so often seems to have capitulated to a ‘will to ugliness.’ He shows us the power in beauty not just where we might expect it — in the visual arts and music — but in domains as diverse as math, theology, morality, physics, astronomy, cosmology, and liturgy. But more than that, his study of beauty makes clear the connection between liturgy, culture, and evangelization, and offers a way to reinvigorate our commitment to the Good, the True, and the Beautiful in the twenty-first century. I am grateful for this book and hope many will take its lessons to heart.”
