FIVE ANGLICAN BISHOPS TO BECOME ROMAN CATHOLIC
This was announced last week. Three of the Bishops are active and two retired. They are to become part of a special non-geographical diocese (“Ordinariate”) for those Church of England members who would like to become Catholic but retain some of their prayer and organisational traditions. All those doing so will pledge allegiance to the full Catechism of the Catholic Church. They will probably be ordained as Catholic priests but not as Bishops.

A number of complete Anglican parishes are already declared as becoming Catholic, for instance one in Folkestone.

Most of those considering this change already believe in the Mass and quite a lot of Church teaching. It was the Anglican Church’s decision to change traditional teaching of Christ through the Church, such as the reservation of the priesthood to men, and the reservation of sex for heterosexual marriage in openness to children, which has made them recognise that the Church of England is not a full part of the Church of Christ. Please pray for them during what is likely to be a difficult time for them and their families.
