I got word from Bishop Roald Flemestad that he had been in Germany. The Nordic Catholic Church website gives an article about ordinations from the Christian Catholic Church and the Order of Port Royal. I used Google for the translation from Norwegian and “tidied up” a little. I hope I have not betrayed what was intended to be said.
On Saturday 17th November Bishop Roald Nikolai ordained two new priests in Germany, Brother Gerhard Seidler OPR and Dr Thomas Döll. Fr Gerhard was ordained as a monk priest in the Order of Port Royal.
Dr Thomas Döll lives in Karlstadt and runs the Sinnakademie, a counseling and personal development academy. He will also be running a parish in Karlstadt.
There were about 100 people present at the ordination, held in the church in Munich of SELKE (Selbständige Evangelish-Lutherische Kirche).
The Bishop had a full programme in Germany this last weekend. It started with a pastoral conference with clergy in Germany, where the theme was both NCC spirituality and strategies for the ongoing church work in Germany. In Hanover, the Bishop had talks with the Bishop of SELKE, which gives the NCC the use of their church in Munich. This is a 150 year old Lutheran church.
The two Bishops were agreed on the most burning questions of our time, and Bishop Hans-Jörg Voigt expressed great interest in continuing contact with the NCC and the Christi-katholische Kirche under Abbot Schlapps.
