7 Anglican clergy, 300 laity to join ordinariate

Catholic World News - January 24, 2011

Seven clergy and 300 laity from six Anglican parishes will join the new Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, according to a BBC report. Father Keith Newton, the former Anglican bishop who leads the ordinariate, said that the estimate of 300 is “slightly optimistic.”

In an interview with BBC Radio 4, Father Netwon said he believed about two dozen groups of Anglican faithful would join the ordinariate and added that “the Catholic Church in England and Wales has been very generous in giving a quarter of a million pounds [$400,000] to set up the ordinariate.”
