Another Step Forward for the Anglican Catholic Ordinariate in the U.S.

You may have seen this announcement last week from the USCCB annual meeting:

Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington announced November 15 that the new ordinariate for former Anglicans in the United States will be established January 1, the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

The full statement with a few more details can be found at the bishop's conference website here.

And you may have seen this elsewhere on the web:

It was planned before the announcement was made but by happy co-incidence the timing is right for a celebration of the upcoming Ordinariate. As some of you know, I have been helping as best I can with the Bl John Henry Newman Anglican Use Society in the Orange Diocese. God willing, I plan to be there on Sunday.
