"Ordinariate bound": St Luke's Episcopal in Bladensburg, Md, to join Catholic Church

"It is with great joy St. Luke's announces its intention to join the Personal Ordinariate of the Roman Catholic Church. We have been discerning the leading of the Holy Spirit since the Holy Father's announcement of Anglicanorum coetibus in October of 2009. Since that time we have been in close dialogue with both the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and the Archdiocese of Washington.

"Over the next few months the people of St. Luke's Ordinariate Catholic Community will undergo formal preparation to become Roman Catholics. This formal preparation will take place at St. Luke's primarily on Sunday's at 9:00am, and on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm. If you are interested in joining the people of St. Luke's on this journey you are encouraged and welcomed to attend.

"We are deeply grateful to Cardinal Wuerl and to Bishop Chane for their support throughout this discernment. We look forward to continuing to worship in the Anglican tradition, while at the same time being in full communion with the Holy See of Peter.

"These are exciting times! We will endeavor to keep you up to date with any information concerning our community and with the Ordinariate. Please browse through our website for the latest information."

Thanks for sharing. I saw this this story on the news this AM at the gym, but missed part of it! It is so exciting when someone converts! This is amazing!

Wow! This is great.

I was amazed when I viewed their parish website. These folks may have been in the Episcopalian Diocese, but they look very Roman Catholic. I dare say they look more "Roman" then the average Roman Catholic parish. They have Reredos, a Crucifix in the sanctuary, & no Cramner table - the place looks like an FSSP Chapel...

Thank you for visiting.
