On 7 November, I believe that ecumenical history may have been made when the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Palermo, Corrado Lorefice, preached the sermon at the installation of the new Chaplain of Holy Cross, the Revd Dr James Hadley. Certainly this is a first in this diocese and in the Church of England itself it may well be unprecedented for a Roman Catholic Archbishop to take such a significant role in the installation of an Anglican parish priest!
Many other local clergy were present for the mass, including the Orthodox Archimandrite for Southern Italy, representing Metropolitan Policarpo of Italy.
Read it all and enjoy the pictures.
I wonder if ecumenical history was made on this occasion when a Roman Catholic Archbishop preached at the installation of an Anglican parish priest and then gave him a gift of a chalice and paten? Certainly this is a first in the @DioceseinEurope https://t.co/IRea5YSbx7 pic.twitter.com/DCAKwZnA7L
