First Ordinariate-Bound Canadian Group Received into Catholic Church, April 15, 2012
Forty Anglicans are being received into the Catholic Church in Ottawa on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 15, with the intent of joining the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. The Houston-based Ordinariate, under the guidance of Msgr. Jeffrey N. Steenson, will have oversight of Canada as well as the United States.
The 40 are members of the Cathedral of the Annunciation parish, part of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada. They are being received by Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast, S.J. at St. Patrick’s Basilica in Ottawa.
Earlier this month, communities in Philadelphia and Indianapolis came into full communion with the Catholic Church and Jon Chalmers became the first of the candidates preparing for priestly ordination in the Ordinariate to be ordained a transitional deacon.
