Four more priests for the Ordinariate
Saturday 22nd September 2012

Four men were ordained to the Sacred Priesthood today, for service in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

Fr Brian Copus and Fr John Maunder (right) were ordained by Bishop Alan Hopes, Auxiliary Bishop of Westminster, at Sacred Heart in Bournemouth, on Saturday morning.

On Saturday evening, the eve of the Solemnity of Our Lady of Walsingham within the Ordinariate, Fr Christopher Cann and Fr WilliamGull were ordained by the Bishop of Nottingham, The Right Reverend Malcolm McMahon OP, in Nottingham Cathedral.

In Bournemouth, the Ordinary, Monsignor Keith Newton, was joined by Mgr Edwin Barnes. Mgr Barnes preached the sermon, reflecting on the journey from Anglicanism to the Catholic Church. During the ordination, hymns by Blessed John Henry Newman and the traditional Anglican setting of the Mass by John Merbecke provided a taste of the Anglican liturgical and spiritual traditions, now given an honoured place within the Catholic Church.

By the end of September 2012, the total number of clergy in the Personal Ordinariate will reach 80.
