Divine Worship in Vienna!

3f19e8b6-dfbd-4658-9b77-133003be7505On May 21, Fr. Stephen Hill of Our Lady of the Southern Cross in Australia celebrated a public Vigil Mass at the Minoritenkirche in Vienna, Austria according to Divine Worship, the Missal of the Personal Ordinariate for Catholics of Anglican tradition.

Fr Hill from Australia, Fr  James Bradley and Fr. Daniel Lloyd from the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in the UK,  and Alexis Kutarna from Texas and the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter were in Vienna as  doctoral students of the liturgical scholar Hans-Jürgen Feulner of the University of Vienna to publicly present their doctoral research projects on Divine Worship.  Professor Feulner said they were accepted.  Kutarna provided the music for the Mass.

Fr. Charles Hough of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Walsingham in Houston presented his thesis in March on the subject: Divine Worship: The Missal. The Order of Mass as a Recognizable Expression of the Roman Rite while being Distinctively and Traditionally Anglican in Character.

Here is the program for the presentations:


This is the third time Divine Worship has been publicly celebrated in Vienna: the first was with Bishop Lopes in March 2017; the second with Fr. Bradley, Fr Hill, Fr Hough, and Fr Lloyd in November 2018, and the third this year on May 21.

Professor Feulner is a director of the Anglicanorum Coetibus Society.

Pope Francis knighted Professor Feulner on Dec. 2014, elevating him to the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great along with Dr. Clinton Brand for their work on the Anglicanae Traditiones commission, which developed the Divine Worship: the Missal.

On Dec. 10, 2018, Archduke Simeon of Hapsburg-Lorraine  installed him as a Knight in the Constantinian Order of St. Georg at a ceremony in Innsbruck, Austria on Dec. 10 for his work on the Anglicanae Traditiones commission.
