Ordinary's visit to Portugal (updated)
Wednesday 27th January 2016

Fr João Vergamota, a Portugeuese priest studying for his License in Canon Law, chose to write his thesis of the provisions of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum coetibus, the legal provision for the establishment for the Personal Ordinariates.  His supervisor encouraged Fr Vergamota to publish the thesis as a book, and Fr Vergomata asked Mgr Newton to write a short forward to the published volume.

Mgr. Newton was invited to attend the launch of the book at the Catholic University of Lisbon along with around 100 guests including the Papal Nuncio for Portugal and the former Rector of the Catholic University of Lisbon, Prof. Braga de Cruz.  Pictured with Mgr. Newton on the platform are Fr Vergamota (left) and his supervisor, Fr Joao Seabra.

The notes for Fr Vergamota's presentation can be read here
