Anglican Use

The term Anglican Use has two meanings. In one, it refers to personal parishes in the United States founded for former members of the United States Episcopal Church who join the Catholic Church as members of the Latin Rite and who wish to maintain some features of Anglicanism. They are also referred to as Pastoral Provision parishes, being established in accordance with the Pastoral Provision granted by Pope John Paul II on 20 June 1980, which permitted the ordination as Catholic priests of married former clergy of the Episcopal Church for service either in such personal parishes or elsewhere in Catholic dioceses of the United States.

The other meaning of the term Anglican Use is the liturgical worship of these parishes, a form found in the Book of Divine Worship.

Famous quotes containing the word anglican:

    I was the rector’s son, born to the anglican order,
    Banned for ever from the candles of the Irish poor;
    The Chichesters knelt in marble at the end of a transept
    With ruffs about their necks, their portion sure.
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)
