Canadian Anglicans to apply for incorporation as Catholic ordinariate

Catholic World News - July 28, 2010

Traditionalist Anglicans in Canada have voted overwhelmingly in favor of union with the Roman Catholic Church.

The Anglican Catholic Church of Canada (ACCC), meeting for a provincial synod in Surrey, British Columbia, voiced strong support for union with the Holy See, under the terms of the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus. The Anglican delegates authorized their provincial, Bishop Peter Wilkinson, to seek canonical approval for an Anglican-Catholic ordinariate, and voted that Bishop Wilkinson should be the first bishop of that ordinariate.

The ACCC claims the allegiance of two dozens Anglican parishes.
