Anglican ordinariate moves parish into Washington, DC

Catholic World News - September 03, 2014

The Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, established to serve the pastoral needs of former Anglicans in the US, is opening a parish community in Washington, DC.

St. Luke’s, an Episcopalian community that entered the Catholic Church in 2011, is moving from Bladensburg, Maryland, to the Immaculate Conception church in downtown Washington. The Vatican-approved liturgy of the ordinariate, incorporating elements of the Anglican liturgical tradition, will be celebrated daily there.

Father Mark Lewis, the pastor of St. Luke’s, said that the move is a major step because it places the ordinariate in the center of the capital city, and highlights the cooperation between the ordinariate and the archdiocese.

Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson, the head of the ordinariate in the US, will preside at the first Mass for the community at 8:30 am on September 7.
