What is an Anglican Ordinariate?

Prof. Philip GoyretPont. University of the Holy Cross (Rome)“Now in this special case this means that bishops and priests and deacons, Anglicans who move to the Catholic Church, they can do it, but not isolated as before. But they can bring with them their communities. ; So they can live with all the people they used to live with in the Anglican communities but in the full communion of the Catholic Church.”The Ordinariates are unique because they allow priests who were married in the Anglican Church to remain so and be ordained a Catholic priest. The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham is the first one to be established. ; And it?s expected that more will be created in Australia and the US in the coming year. ;AEAM-BN
