900 Anglicans to enter Church at Easter
April 21, 2011
Some 900 Anglicans, including 61 clergy, are entering the Catholic Church this Easter as members of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham this Easter.
The personal ordinariate is a new ecclesiastical structure, established by Pope Benedict with his apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus as a means of welcoming those Anglicans who wish to enter the Catholic Church. The ordinariate allows Anglican communities to maintain their distinct liturgical and pastoral traditions, while being fully in communion with the Holy See
