Australian Anglican bishop becomes Catholic layman
CWN - June 15, 2011
A former Anglican bishop who resigned under pressure has been received into the Catholic Church.
Ross Davies had been the Anglican bishop of Murray, Australia, until September 2010. He resigned before he was scheduled to face an ecclesiastical trial on a number of charges. The charges against him, raised by other Anglican prelates, included the complaint that he had expressed an interest in Catholicism, as well as complaints about his handling of a sex-abuse case.
Davies told The Australian that he has found it “very relaxing” to be a Catholic layman. He said that he has no interest in seeking ordination to the Catholic priesthood.
