St. Aelred was created as a Catholic Community by Bishop Steven Lopes of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter on the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, in the Year of Our Lord 2017. We began as a group of friends committed to the prayers of the Church. St. Aelred guides us as our patron due to the place of spiritual friendship on our journey to Christ's true Church and in our development as an Ordinariate Community.

This blog is written by Gregory Tipton, the Administrative Contact for St. Aelred and a candidate for Holy Orders. It is mostly reflections on Liturgical Living that covers a vast array of disciplines.
