Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”


It is with great joy that we learn than today, the Feast of Saints Thomas More and John Fisher, one of our Chaplains of BASMOM, Monsignor Andrew Raymond Wadsworth, who is currently Secretary General of ICEL, has been made a Chaplain to His Holiness and Member of the Papal Household. 

Monsignor Wadsworth has been a great friend of the Conventual Church over the years, supporting the Easter Triduum since the first year in 2003, and has sung the main Mass of Easter Sunday on several occasions, as well as on many feasts of the Order.

We know many of those who attend the Conventual Church regularly will wish to join in congratulating Monsignor Wadsworth on this joyful news, and to wish him well in his continuing work in Washington.
