Welcome to episode 99, the countdown to episode 100 continues! In this episode I have the honor of interviewing Bishop Theodore Feldmann!
Bishop Theodore Feldmann is a retired professional pastoral musician and serves the Ordinariate of Divine Providence in the Ascension Alliance. He teaches courses in the Ascension Theological College: New Cosmology; Introduction to Liturgy; Sacraments of the Church and Liturgy Practice in which students are assigned the task of writing and presiding at their own liturgy.
Theodore's life-long call to ordination convinced him that he needed to seek a different approach to ordination than that offered by the mainline denominations. After several frustrating attempts to be ordained in various jurisdictions, one of those students recommended the Catholic Apostolic Church of Antioch. Archbishop Richard Gundrey of the Church of Antioch, responded enthusiastically and was organized and supportive.
After earning an M. Div. from Sophia Divinity School, he was incardinated as a deacon in 2005, and ordained to the priesthood in Baltimore, MD, in 2007. Concurrently with his work in the Roman Catholic Church he founded of the Beloved Disciple Church of Antioch in Baltimore, an urban contemplative community and was pastor until his retirement when he and his spouse moved to New Orleans. He was consecrated a bishop in the Independent Sacramental Movement in 2017.
