Heading to Rome? Will Entire Maryland Episcopal Parish Become Catholic? Comments

The Process which brought the whole parish to this historic moment began with a Vestry retreat in October 2007 where it was decided unanimously that Mount Calvary should explore the possibility of becoming part of the Roman Catholic Church. Since then the All Saints Sisters of the Poor were received into the Catholic Church and the Apostolic Constitution for Anglicans coming into full communion was promulgated.  Continue Reading

    Alleluia! God listens to the prayers of His faithful! Let us pray even more and more fervently for the unification of all Christians! I so want everybody to adore the Eucharist & venerate the Blessed Mother... For the greater glory of God!

    I am very touched by this new, since little, after reading the reasons why the church was divided during the Anglican schism in England, I could not stop thinking, these divisions are not from God, we are all Christians we all believe in Jesus, our differences are all superficial and man made. I could not believe that God could be happy with all this mess that we humans have done and with all these walls we have raised and all the innocent people that died as a result. Today my eyes have seen the answer of God to this question, the answer: we are all one body, His body, and he will bring us all home one day.
    My most sincere welcome to the Mount Calvary Church people.

    Glad to see such tremendous blessings. Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let´s remmember that the words "Roman Catholic" are used only in english speaking countries because anglicanism was looking for diferentiate their catholicism. The Cathoilc Church is one (with different rites and karisms) and in the rest of the world is just the Catholic Church, any national prefix is just an array used by others.

    Again, Prais God!!!

    "Father that they may be one." This is Jesus own prayer. God bless us all.

    Praise God, Father almighty. Praise Jesus Christ, His only son. Praise the Holy Spirit, our Mother Mary with her spouse St. Joseph for this most wonderful and joyous of happenings. What a rich blessing on our church and on our soon-to-be fellow Catholics. We pray that more and more of our separated brothers and sisters come to the fullness of faith in Holy Mother Church and that we Catholics welcome them with open arms. Again, Praise God!!

    I thank the Lord fir this wonderful breach in the wall of separation. May it widen and become a cascade until we are all one under the umbrella of the Catholic Church.

    For my 72 years I have been a Catholic of the Anglican practice in my mind. From 16 0r 17 when with any small understanding I read JOhn 14-17 with any understanding I believed we should be visibly one. Now we are voting. Pray for our hopeful, joyous parish. Indeed may St Michael and all his fellows guard our way. Pat,
