Personal Ordinariates

On 9 December 2009, Pope Benedict XVI issued the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus, authorizing the establishment of personal ordinariates for former Anglicans. One was established for the United States on 1 January 2012 under the title of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter.

Canonical differences between the Anglican Use parishes and the personal ordinariate are outlined in a study published in the 23 January 2012 issue of the National Catholic Reporter. The Anglican Use parishes have not yet joined the new personal ordinariate. A meeting of the Anglican Use Society is scheduled for 8–10 November 2012, in which the leader of the personal ordinariate will take part.
