Australian Anglicans plan Catholic ordinariate

Catholic World News - February 14, 2011

Australian Anglicans planning to enter a Catholic ordinariate there discussed the practical arrangements for the move at a conference last week.

Bishop Peter Elliott, an auxiliary of the Melbourne archdiocese, said that those interested in entering the Catholic Church should make a written application. The process will entail providing evidence of Baptism, making a Confession and a statement of faith, and Confirmation.

Bishop Elliott stressed that the ordinariate should not be seen as a one-time effort to accommodate a certain group of Anglicans, but as a path that would remain open to others. “We can’t let the ordinariate be a Jurassic Park,” he said. “We must keep the doors open.”
