The following information was given at the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Plenary Meeting which took place from 22-25 November at Mary MacKillop Place.
Archbishop Denis Hart, chair of the ad hoc Commission for the Personal Ordinariate, provided a verbal update on the present state of preparation for the introduction of a Personal Ordinariate to be known as the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross.
This should have been posted a few weeks ago, but it didn't receive wide attention in the media, and it escaped the notice of many. Thank you to one of our Australian friends for calling it to our attention. It's wonderful to know that great progress is being made in moving toward an Australian Ordinariate!
