Bishop Edwin Barnes has authored a new booklet to aid Church of England congregations as they discern how to respond to the Holy Father's invitation in Anglicanorum Coetibus. The booklet is entitled "The Catholic Church and England: The Pope's Offer of Personal Ordinariates for Groups of Anglicans" and consists of Bishop Edwin's personal reflections on the Apostolic Constitution. The booklet is meant to empower priests and their congregations, especially as they look forward to February 22, 2010, the day of prayer and discernment requested by the provincial episcopal visitors.
It is to be priced £3.50, or £5 to include postage. It is thanks to the Church Union and ACS that this very low price has been achieved, for they hope that it can be put into the hands of as many priests and laypeople as possible, and as soon as possible.
If you wish to order your pre-publication copy, or need to know about postage for quantities or for overseas, ask ACS: firstname.lastname@example.org.
