Anglican bishop converts to Catholicism
CWN - February 19, 2010
The Right Reverend Paul Richardson, who retired at the end of last year as the assistant Anglican bishop of Newcastle, has been received into the Catholic Church.
“I was received into full communion with the Catholic church in January,” said the retired prelate, who entered the Church on the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. “I would have become a Catholic even if the Church of England wasn’t ordaining women bishops.”
“In a sense I feel it’s what I’ve always been, so this is like coming home.”
Richardson added that he is not certain whether he will seek ordination in the Catholic Church.
