Prelate invites Anglicans to learn more about ordinariate

Catholic World News - July 16, 2014

Following the Church of England’s decision to allow women bishops, the head of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham has invited those who are “considering their future” to learn more about the ordinariate.

The Church of England’s decision makes “harder the position of those within the Church of England who still long for corporate unity with the Catholic and Orthodox Churches,” said Msgr. Keith Newton. “Pope Benedict XVl's decision to set up the ordinariates-- allowing former Anglicans to enter the full communion of the Catholic Church, bringing with them much of the Anglican heritage and tradition-- was made in response to repeated requests from Anglicans who longed for unity with the Catholic Church.”

“On 6 September the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham is holding a Called To Be One exploration day, which is aimed at making the Ordinariate more widely known and understood and reaching those whom God may be calling to join it,” he continued. “All who are interested-- whether because they are considering their future or just because they would like to see more of what we are and what we do-- are warmly invited to attend.”
