Our Place in the Ordinariates


SAINT GREGORY THE GREAT is a community of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter, the structure established in the United States and Canada for Episcopalians, Anglicans, and other Protestants wishing to enter into communion with Rome. Our Ordinariate, erected in 2012, was the second Personal Ordinariate established under Pope Benedict’s Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Cœtibus (2009). You can read more about the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter, our new Bishop Steven J. Lopes (consecrated February 2016), and sign up for its quarterly magazine The Ordinariate Observer here.

The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter recently published a one-page summary to explain the Ordinariate. This PDF can be printed and distributed.

Bishop Lopes discusses the Ordinariate in this video:

The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham includes the United Kingdom: it was, rightfully, the first of the Personal Ordinariates, and was established in 2011.

A monthly magazine, THE PORTAL is for those in the Personal Ordinariates of the Catholic Church,  Anglicans who are interested in the Ordinariate, and all Catholic friends of the Ordinariates. You can read it online and subscribe to it here. We also post links to recent issues here on our website.

The Anglicanorum Coetibus Society has an international focus. The aim of its blog, “is to discuss how we ‘maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church, as a precious gift nourishing the faith of the members of the Ordinariate and as a treasure to be shared.’ What are these traditions?  What role do the Ordinariates play in ecumenism, evangelization and bridge-building?”
