Head of ordinariate hopes for use of some Anglican parishes

Catholic World News - January 18, 2011

Father Keith Newton, the former Anglican bishop who is now head of the first personal ordinariate for Anglicans entering the Catholic Church, told a press conference that he hopes that the ordinariate may be permitted to share in the use of some Anglican parishes. “It obviously depends on the numbers who are going from that congregation,” he said. “We do not want any rancor or bad feeling.”.

“We don’t want to be burning bridges down, we want to be building them,” he added. “I certainly do not look back on the Church of England with anger or bitterness; this move is part of my on-going pilgrimage, and I want to keep doors open between those who are still in the Church of England and myself.”

“Any way that the ordinariate can foster unity must be God’s work.”
