US Anglican Ordinariate News- Mt. Calvary Church- Baltimore is Coming Home!

Deo Gratias!

A person I know in Baltimore who is at Mt. Calvary advised it was announced today. As noted on the church's website:

On October 24, 2010…

Mount Calvary became the first congregation to announce its decision to leave The Episcopal Church in order to accept Pope Benedict XVI’s invitation, contained in the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum coetibus, to become an Anglican Use parish of the Roman Catholic Church, and to become part of the Personal Ordinariate for former Anglicans when it is established in the United States.

The parishioners have been in formation through education sessions with one of my former pastors, a Dominican priest (Order of Preachers) who was an Episcopal priest before crossing the Tiber. The church is historic and from what I have gathered, the issue of the church property had to be decided which is why another congregation in Maryland became the first Anglican parish under Anglicanorum coetibus to actually be accepted into the church.

I am excited partially primarily as it is wo when anyone comes home to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I am also excited because of the richness of liturgy-language, music and postures that Anglicans are bringing to the church. Those who may never want to step foot into a church with the TLM my go to an Anglican Ordinariate where they will experience a mass that probably looks like what the bishops attending Vatican II actually had in mind...I am just saying.

Here is their website:
