Ecumenical Welcome for New Priest-in-charge of Pas de Calais

The warmth of our ecumenical relations in France was underlined recently when the Roman Catholic Church website for the Calais area posted a prominent news item covering the licensing of the Revd Sara MacVane as Priest-in-Charge of Pas de Calais. The website reported very positively on the service led by Archdeacon Ken Letts on 30 January in St Mary Magdalene’s Roman Catholic Church, which included several clergy from the RC and Reformed Churches. The picture above shows the Archdeacon (in chasuble) with Sara in the middle, surrounded by Anglican and ecumenical clergy colleagues. The report (in French) can be found here.

  1. I see 8 rotund people dresses in ancient clothing
    I see a pristine lawn
    I see an empty church building
    I also see a makeshift church in the "jungle" operated by a makeshift priest
    I see a "jungle" about to be closed down

    So, Christians, where is Christ?
