How Cool! We're Included!

The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter lists our sodality in Ottawa among the eleven communities now part of it.  Here's the list from the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter web site.

Anglicanorum coetibus, the Apostolic Constitution that created the Ordinariates for people of the Anglican Patrimony, envisions parishes, groups, and religious communities entering the Ordinariate.

Communities in the Ordinariate include the following:

Our Lady of Walsingham, Houston, TX
Mount Calvary, Baltimore, MD
Saint Luke's, Bladensburg, MD
Saint Timothy, Fort Worth, TX
Saint Peter the Rock, Fort Worth, TX
Saint Michael the Archangel, Philadelphia, PA
St. Joseph of Aramathea, Indianapolis, IN
St. John's, Calgary, Alberta
Sodality of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Ottawa, Ontario
St. Anselm’s, Greenville, SC
St. Thomas More, Scranton, PA

And it's also good to see this list of men being ordained for the Catholic priesthood in England, including at least a couple former TAC priests and the former Fr. John Hunwicke!   Such good news from the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham web site.

Deborah Gyapong is a member of the Sodality of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary ( in Ottawa, a former parish of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada (Traditional Anglican Communion) whose members were received individually and corporately into the Roman Catholic Church on April 15, 2012 by Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast at St. Patrick’s Basilica. Under the provisions of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum coetibus, the community will celebrate an approved Anglican Use liturgy and hopes to soon join with other sodalities across Canada to form the Canadian Deanery of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter under Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson, Ordinary. As we wait for our priest(s) to be ordained as Catholic priests, God willing, Archbishop Prendergast will provide priests to celebrate our Sunday Eucharist according to the Anglican Use. Deborah is a journalist who covers religion and politics in Canada’s national capital, writing primarily for Roman Catholic newspapers since 2004. Her novel The Defilers, published in 2006, was not a best seller, alas. She spent 17 years at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in news and current affairs, including 12 years as a television producer.

  1. Laudetur Jesus Christus!

    We should be especially be glad to see John Hunwicke on the list of ordinands. It must have been terrible for him to find that his ordination was put back on the first application and it is great news to see that whatever was thought to be the obstacle has now been overcome.

    1. Totally agree! Loved his blog and I hope he will be able to contribute again as a Catholic Priest. MANY YEARS Father John!

      1. Wonderful news, indeed! I hope Fr Hunwicke begins blogging again … it has been a dull year without him.

  2. Make that twelve communities for CSP. They've added:
    St. John Vianney Fellowship: Cleburne/Granbury, Texas to the list!

  3. News from Australia: The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, under the patronage of St Augustine of Canterbury will be formally established on 15 June. Ordinary tba; no word yet on whether the Church of the Torres Strait will be included initially.
