Announcing our second Fellow-in-Residence

As the founder of Akenside Press, now in its almost sixth year of mission to aid in the rediscovery of the true Anglican patrimony of the English School of Catholic spirituality, I am most pleased to announce the continued flowering of an initiative—our Fellows-in-Residence program—planted six month ago and which promises to make creative strides and bear fruit.

This new flowering is the addition of our second Fellow-in-Residence, Ian Edgar. A Canadian by birth and a small-scale farmer for much of his adult life, Ian now lives in England and will be ordained, God-willing, a Deacon later this month on 30 June and serve two parishes in the Diocese of Chichester.

Ian will have three areas of focus in his Fellowship. Long inspired by the writings of Jean Vanier, founder of L’Arche, Ian will explore in his Fellowship possible areas of mutuality between the thought of Vanier and the English School of Catholic Spirituality. He will also explore whether study of the English School might yield new directions in prayer with respect to the issues of Full Communion with the Pope of Rome and the Eastern Orthodox Communion. The third area of focus for Ian will be the theology of the Faithful Remnant (a key theme of Martin Thornton’s theology) and inducing its rejuvenation within parish life.

Welcome, Ian! Pray for his ministry as a Fellow-in-Residence, and for the overall ministry of Akenside Press to strengthen Anglican patrimony through the renewal of Catholic reality in Anglican parish life.

Announcing our first Fellow-in-Residence

As the founder of Akenside Press, now in its fifth year of mission to aid in the rediscovery of the true Anglican patrimony of the English School of Catholic spirituality, I am most pleased to announce the flowering of an initiative that promises to make creative strides and bear fruit. That initiative is our Fellows-in-Residence program.

Blazing a trail into unchartered yet exciting waters will be our first Fellow-in-Residence, Nathaniel Marshall, Obl.S.B. Being an Oblate in the Saint Benet Biscop Chapter of Saint John’s Abbey, Collegeville, Nathaniel is profoundly committed to Benedictine spirituality, which is at the ascetical heart of the English School and thus any conception of Anglican patrimony. In additional to Benedictine spirituality, Nathaniel’s specific areas of research will include the writings of Father Andrew, S.D.C. (Henry Ernest Hardy, Anglican priest), Plainchant and the daily Offices, and the Domestic Church.
