Welsh archbishop gives Anglican ordinariate space in his cathedral

Catholic World News - May 02, 2014

Archbishop George Stack of Cardiff has made his metropolitan cathedral available for the use of the Anglican ordinariate in Wales.

The ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham will have its own dedicated section, with its own altar, within St. David’s cathedral. To date the ordinariate has been sharing a small church with Byzantine-rite Ukrainian Catholics.

Canon Peter Collins of the cathedral welcomed the arrival of the former Anglicans. “They are a small group as yet, but they make a very important contribution to the life of the Catholic Church and we want to see them, and the ordinariate generally, flourish,” he told the Catholic Herald. He said that the more prominent location of the ordinariate’s liturgies might spur other Anglicans to consider entering the Catholic Church.
