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

    A very nice move. I think credit should be given to the supreme pontiff for his initiative.

    Welcome home, brothers and sisters in Baltimore! My husband and I were never Episcopalians, but for many years have been members of the founding parish of the Anglican Use Liturgy of the Catholic Church, developed by our pastor, a former Anglican priest.. In an archdiocese that for many years grew increasingly liberal, this parish has grown as it retained a strong committment to faithfulness to Catholic teaching. See the beauty of this Catholic parish here:

    I am an "oldster" who moved from the Lutheran to Episcopal church in the early 1950's and then took a short trip on the road to Rome in pre-Vatican II days, where things were much different. That was a wise choice. That "they all may be one" will eventually come to pass. Talks with the Orthodox are going very well also. Pray for Father Catania and his flock who basically were Catholic and now will become Roman Catholic with English Church tradition. It is a fulfillment of Christ's message. What more to say except Alleluia!

    Born of English emigrants to Canada I always considered myself a Traditional Anglo-Catholic of the Oxford Movement. Seeing and Living in these Historic events is a gift of god that I am forever grateful.
