Advent 2011 begins the first new liturgical year of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. As work continues on the liturgical use of the Ordinariates, certain forms of service have been permitted ad interim. Amongst these are Morning and Evening Prayer as these have developed in the Anglican tradition. This Ordo provides an interim Calendar and Lectionary for the celebration of these Offices. The Calendar is in conformity with the General Roman Calendar as complemented by the Calendar of a particular Church, in this case the interim Calendar of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. It should be noted that, where the Ordo prescribes celebrations not in the General Roman Calendar or in the National Calendar for England of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, these celebrations have only interim authority. It should also be noted that, at this point, no decision has been taken – and indeed may never be taken - which would significantly modify the provision of the General Roman Calendar nor of the National Calendar for England.
