More on the Canadian Ordinariates!

It is with GREAT joy I tell you that most parishes in the Anglican Church wishing to come home to Rome in Canada, will be doing so on or around April the 15th!

Deborah Gyapong, who owns and writes the blog "Canadian Friends of the Ordinariate", says the following.
Today we began our Eucharistic Fast in preparation for our reception into the Catholic Church on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 15, 2012 at St. Patrick's Basilica in an Anglican Use Mass and initiation celebrated by Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast.
So we had Solemn High Matins, the Liturgy of the Word and Spiritual Communion.
I can scarcely contain my joy as I write this.  What a difference ever since we made a collective decision across the country among parishes and groups in the pro-diocese of Our Lady of Walsingham of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada, a temporary diocese to accommodate those of us who want to join an Ordinariate.  All the anguish of the past year is gone.
What great news! His Grace, Archbishop Prendergast is a big supporter and force to have an ordinariate for Anglo-Catholics in Canada, so that they TRULY can become Anglo-Catholics.

The Anglican Patrimony in Canada is almost the same as that of the CofE. Actually, another name for the Anglican Church of Canada is the Church of England in Canada, and even though most of the Anglo-Catholics in the ACofC have gone to the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada, there are some Anglo-Catholics in the ACofC, and there definitely is a living High Church.

Hopefully they too will accept the invitation to come home, to the one true Church, and I pray they will come without delay.

Our Lady of Walsingham, Pray for us! Christ have mercy upon us! St George and St Joseph, Pray for Us!
