Irish Augustinians apologise for Concelebration

Although it was hardly the most unpopular of moves, but the Dundalk based Augustinian Order in Ireland, whose three Dundalk based priests were behind the concelebration of Mass with a local Anglican vicar “deeply regrets the pain, confusion and damage caused as a result of the Easter Sunday Eucharistic celebration at its church in Drogheda”. A letter of apology was sent to the Archbishop of Armagh, Archbishop Seán Brady; to the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Giuseppe Lazzarotto; and to Fr Robert Prevost, the Prior General of the Augustinian Order.
