Cathedral of the Incarnation Votes in Favor of Anglican Ordinariate
Cathedral is affiliated with the Anglican Church in America, a member of the Traditional Anglican Communion
The congregation of the Cathedral of the Incarnation has voted overwhelmingly in favor of the proposed Resolution that the Cathedral of the Incarnation accept the terms of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus and request admission, at the earliest possible moment, to the anticipated personal ordinariate to be erected in the United States of America.
On Sunday, December 5, the parish voted to accept the invitation of the Holy Father and request admission to the Catholic Church through the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus.
Christian Campbell, who serves as the Senior Warden of the Cathedral, told Catholic Online that while the parish has made their decision, this does not include a change in the episcopate of Bishop Campese or the functioning of the ACA Diocese of the Eastern United States. Each parish will be undertaking their own discernment and decision as will each clergy and bishop in the denomination.
On his blog, "The Anglo Catholic," Campbell published the following story about this historic decision.
"At one o'clock this afternoon of the Second Sunday in Advent, the Dean of the Cathedral of the Incarnation, Orlando, Florida, the Very Rev. Fr. Mark Siegel, the Rector's Warden, Mr. Christian Clay Columba Campbell, the Clerk of the Parish Corporation, Ms. Carla Hansen, and witness and parishioner, Mr. Joseph Koehler, certified the results of a congregational vote on a proposed Resolution that the Cathedral of the Incarnation accept the terms of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus and request admission, at the earliest possible moment, to the anticipated personal ordinariate to be erected in the United States of America. This Resolution followed upon the unanimous approval of a similar measure by the Cathedral Chapter in September of this year.
"The congregation of the Cathedral of the Incarnation has voted overwhelmingly - 94% - in favor of the proposed Resolution, and, having achieved the two-thirds majority required under the parish bylaws, the Resolution is adopted. The full text of the Resolution follows.

RESOLUTION OF PARISH ASSEMBLY FOR THE PURPOSE OF AFFILIATING WITH ANGLICAN PERSONAL ORDINARIATE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
With profound gratitude and filial respect to the Successor of St. Peter, the Congregation of the Cathedral of the Incarnation warmly receives the Apostolic Constitution, Anglicanorum Coetibus, of His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI.
Having prayerfully considered the aforementioned papal legislation, along with its associated Complementary Norms, and with due regard for the accompanying canonical commentary by Fr. Gianfranco Ghirlanda, S.J., Rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University, (all published under the auspices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on November 4, 2009) and recognizing in the Holy Father's most generous response to the pleas of various Anglican groups our common desire and holy commitment to achieve the reconciliation of our small flock with the Catholic Church in a corporate fashion and with due regard to our own precious Anglican Patrimony, this Congregation now resolves:
1. that the Bishop of the Diocese of the Eastern United States, the Dean of the Cathedral, and other Officers of the Corporation, be authorized to take whatever steps may be necessary to affiliate the Cathedral of the Incarnation with the anticipated personal ordinariate to be erected in the United States of America under the terms of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus.
2. that the text of this Resolution be published immediately on the parish web site and the online journal, The Anglo-Catholic, with copies to be posted directly to the Holy Father, William Cardinal Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and the authorized liaison for the United States of America.
