I know I have reported on this course before but I was particularly struck by the quote, which I have highlighted from the President of Ushaw. It is from The Anglican Journal.
A three-week course designed to introduce foreign priests to the British way of doing things in the Roman Catholic church has opened at Ushaw College outside Durham in Northumberland, England.
The first group of seven priests is from India, Nigeria and Poland.
“Some foreign priests working in Britain tend to be too dogmatic about the church’s moral rightness on just about everything,” said Rev. Terry Drainey the president of Ushaw College. “That’s not how we do things here. This course shows how we deal with a whole range of issues affecting Catholics, including the role of women, divorce, the lay ministry and homosexuality.”
It is the first course of its kind and is the brainchild of Bishop Crispian Hollis of Portsmouth.
