A Festival of Lessons and Carols for Advent held on December 12, 2021, Gaudete Sunday, at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Walsingham in Houston, Texas. The cathedral is the mother church of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter, one of three dioceses with Anglican traditions in the Catholic Church.
The Traditional Anglican primate and archbishop achieved Christian unity not seen since the Reformation, at great personal cost, and was finally reunited with the Catholic Church as a priest in good standing.
EXCERPT: "I typically do not prefer physical books, and had been using an app for the Daily Prayers for a few years off and on. I was drawn to this physical book because it is the Commonwealth Edition. I took the plunge ...This is a book I am thankful I picked up, the cost with shipping to Canada required my saving up my reading money. But it is worth it."

But his plunge into the Tiber may prove his biggest splash yet.
The new e-monthly St. Peter’s Rambler is an ACS initiative that aims to share good news, good ideas and good inspirations taking place in the Ordinariates in order to equip Catholic missionary disciples in the Anglican tradition.
Loss & Gain editors Timothy McCleod and Ryan Pollack, both former Episcopal priests now Catholic, talk with Fr. Michael Nazir-Ali, the former Anglican Bishop of Rochester who is now a Catholic priest in the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.
EXCERPT: "However we keep Advent in our own tradition, the beauty of the Catholic religion is that it encompasses a wide range of customs and practices that all evoke the one faith we profess. These 'small t' traditions are all part of the one 'capital T' Tradition that our Catholic faith proclaims."
Diana Morphew is the first lay person in the U.K. Ordinariate invested as a Dame of the Equestrian Order or the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, which is tasked by the Holy See with sustaining and aiding the charitable, cultural and social works and institutions of the Catholic Church in the Holy Land, and encouraging the spread of the faith there.

EXCERPT: "I also hope that Bishop Lopes, though not originally from an Anglican background, has by now absorbed enough of what he himself refers to as the Anglican patrimony’s 'intangibles' to bring an important Anglican perspective to his role in the USCCB."
