We are Christians formed in the Anglican/Episcopal tradition, entering into full communion with the Catholic Church through the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter (the “Anglican Ordinariate”), a community of joyful and peaceful Catholics in which the Anglican patrimony is preserved, nourished, renewed.
We welcome your prayers and participation! Rejoice with us as our first class is received into full communion – Saturday, June 1, 5.15PM at St. Mary’s, Charleston!
In recent times the Holy Spirit has moved groups of Anglicans to petition…to be received into full Catholic communion individually as well as corporately. The Apostolic See has responded favorably to such petitions. Indeed, the successor of Peter, mandated by the Lord Jesus to guarantee the unity of the episcopate and to preside over and safeguard the unity of all the Churches, could not fail to make available the means necessary to bring this holy desire to realization. Anglicanorum coetibus, Benedict XVI
