Father Ed Meeks is one of the greatest most interesting speakers in the Church.
He is a wonderful man – Christ-like we all should become! He is known as Father Ed, the journey to this day was circuitous. He went to St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore as a young adult, intending to become a Catholic priest. … Finally, Meeks became an Anglican priest and formed Christ the King Church in 1996, with his wife, Jan, as an administrative assistant.
Christ the King Church is a community of faithful Christian believers of all ages in the Greater Baltimore area. He was ordained on June 23, 2012, as a Catholic Priest under the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, by provisions of Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus, in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church.
This makes it possible for all Anglicans to become Catholic. Most of Father Meeks’s congregation became Catholic along with him. Pope Benedict allowed Anglicans to retain some of their traditions, such as married Anglican Priests can become Catholic Priests. Father Meeks and his wife Jan have four grown children.
As a former Anglican parish with Charismatic roots, the Roman Catholic Sunday Mass features both traditional hymnody and contemporary praise songs, coupled with the forthright preaching of the Word of God, all centered on the celebration and reception of the Holy Eucharist.
