Leap of faith for former Danvers priest

From Massachusetts-

Jurgen Liias’s spiritual journey has led him down an unusual path: Two weeks ago, the former Episcopal priest of Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church in Danvers was ordained as a Catholic priest.

Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the archbishop of Boston, ordained Liias as a Catholic priest on Saturday, April 20, at St. Mary Star of the Sea Church in Beverly.

He’ll now spend much of his time leading parishioners at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Ordinariate in Beverly — a church under the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.

Liias will also help out regularly at St. Margaret Church, a Catholic parish in Beverly Farms, and is available to assist in any other parishes in the Archdiocese when needed.

The transition into Catholicism began 25 years ago for Liias. He belongs to a worldwide movement to bring the Catholic denominations back together.
