“We all went to Oxford as Episcopalians, and we left as Catholics.”

Brother Bonaventure Chapman”s background was in a number of denominations: Presbyterian, Church of Christ, Lutheran.  It was when he went to Oxford, England, to study for Anglican ministry, that all of his “protests” against the Catholic Church finally melted away, and he followed God’s call to religious life with the Dominicans.

    Good for you brother! God bless your vocation as as a brother Dominican

  • Cor Mundum

    We are enriched by your “yes” to both the catholic faith and the religious life…May God continue to bless you immensely! Congratulation on your recent priestly ordination!

    Becoming an anglo-catholic brought me into enough of a catholic faith that I wanted the full measure and the Reformation came to a personal conclusion. So, yeah; studying where anglo-catholicism started will do that.
