Blessing of Bishop -Elect Jane Via RCWP by Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community in San Diego Today

I attended  the Liturgy at Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community (MMACC) in San Diego today.

It was a great joy to participate in a vibrant, inclusive Catholic Community liturgy.
From the moment I entered the lovely church grounds, I was warmly welcomed  not only by the greeters but, by members of this  welcoming community. 
After Communion,  the community blessed Jane in her new ministry as one of the bishops who will serve the western region of  RCWP-USA. The members of MMACC  community presented Jane with her episcopal ring.  She will be ordained bishop  along with Suzanne Thiel, on October 1st in Santa Cruz. I will be one of the ordaining bishops celebrating this Rite. 

Excerpt from blessing:
"May Jane be like Euodia, Lydia,, Dorcas, Phoebe, and Eunice-- women who recognized the Good News in Jesus Christ and joined Paul and Peter in spreading the Gospel across the world. "
