I was interested to read that the Canons Regular of the New Jeruselem have been incardinated in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charlston by Bishop Michael Bransfield. I first came across this order, which follows the Augustinian rule, and is led by Fr Daniel Openheimer, in 2006 when I attended a colloquium in Oxford organised by CIEL. The community consists of Fr Daniel, who formerly belonged to the FSSP and two brothers.
The good news is that both Brother John and Brother Alban are to be ordained priests on 17th October by Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who is also an Augustinian. These ordinations have been long delayed because they have had to await the incardination of the Order. Let us hope that the Canons Regular of the New Jeruselem will attract more members, now that they are properly established.
