Traditional Anglicans in Canada request union with Rome

March 16, 2010

The Anglican Catholic Church of Canada is formally seeking union with the Holy See under the provisions of the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus.

Describing the apostolic constitution as a “most welcome, gracious, and generous response” to their 2007 petition, the leaders of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada have requested “that the Apostolic Constitution be implemented in Canada; that we may establish an interim Governing Council of three priests (or bishops); and that this Council be given the task and authority to propose to His Holiness a terna for appointment of the initial Ordinary.”

The requests were made in a March 12 letter to Cardinal William Levada, prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
