We are honored to announce Monsignor Keith Newton, the ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in the UK, will be the celebrant and preacher at St. Luke's on October 16, 10:00am. This will be the first ever Catholic Mass celebrated at St. Luke's.
Msgr. Newton was formerly a bishop of the Church of England and served as the Bishop of Richborough in the Province of Canterbury from 2002 to 2010. On January 15, 2011, he and two other former Church of England bishops were ordained to the priesthood in Westminster Cathedral by Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster. On this date Pope Benedict XVI appointed him the first ordinary of the Ordinariate in England and Wales.
The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham is the very first Ordinariate established by His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI. Ordinariates in other parts of the world are to be established in the near future.
