On Sunday Deborah Gyapong wrote in about the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, one of three Ordinariates set up for former Anglicans who believe and profess the Catholic faith, as well as other rites that are in communion with the church:
The constitution recognizes “liturgical celebrations according to the liturgical books proper to the Anglican tradition, which have been approved by the Holy See, so as to maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church, as a precious gift nourishing the faith of the members of the Ordinariate and as a treasure to be shared.” The Holy Father’s incredible generosity led to the establishment of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in England and Wales, the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross in Australia, and our Ordinariate in North America.
There are many different ways to worship and be in communion with Rome. The DC staff would love to explore all of these different rites. What do you think?
