From Metropolitan Joseph Ciccone

The Mission on the Move was honored to bless James Pasquale in his new role as Acolyte and seminarian for the Progressive Catholic Church last evening as he begins his training in the Diaconal formation program. James will be installed at Saints Francis and Clare Catholic Community in Scranton PA on Sunday. Another wonderful addition to the PCC and the vineyard of God! May God bless him always!

From Fr. John Thomas Therese of St. Anne’s in Dallas/ Fort Worth TX

Today in other news, HEB donated 50 hams (25 shank, 25 butt) to St Anne ICC, the independent Catholic church I serve at with independent Catholic clergy from 3 different jurisdictions. I made a call to help families listed by the school district as needing a little help this Christmas. All I did was make one call to HEB and explained about the ICC/ISM.. I said, we’re “fully Catholic yet free of the Authority and oversight of Rome; inclusive and affirming..” He said, “Oh thank God, I’m divorced and Catholic… ..I haven’t been to Mass on years.”

The hams will be delivered throughout the remainder of this week. -and we hope he comes to Mass. Just like a Texan we drove around with Hams in the back of a pickup. (Dollar amount: $457.76)
