Australian Anglicans plan for their ordinariate

Catholic World News - January 31, 2011

Australian Anglicans who are interested in entering the Catholic Church will gather at Coomera this week for a 3-day conference, planning for the establishment of a new ordinariate in Australia.

The Traditional Anglican Communion, which has taken a lead role in efforts to find a place for Anglicans in the Catholic Church, will discuss practical details of establishing an ordinariate, including the delicate question of ownership of parish properties. In a related development, an Anglican group has identified 74 different groups of Anglicans who have indicated a desire to join a Catholic ordinariate. Of those groups, 32 are in the US, 29 in Canada, and 13 in Great Britain. The survey did not include Australian groups, so the ultimate number of Anglican communities interested in entering the Catholic Church would be substantially larger.
