Orlando Anglican parish goes Catholic

It's the first in Florida to do so, and becomes part of "the Ordinariate of the United States and Canada formed on Jan. 1." I'm interested because it's right down the street, and if they use any of the Anglican liturgy I grew up with, I might have to stop in now and then.

The bishop of the Orlando Diocese will be part of the confirmation ceremony, but the parish itself will not be part of the diocese, rather of the aforementioned ordinariate. And the parish priest, a Father Holiday, "who has been married 25 years, is going through the process of becoming a married Catholic priest, which requires the Vatican's approval."

I must confess to what I hope is holy envy, Bill, if you grew up with a liturgy centred around the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Such beautiful language.

I did. I'll let you know what I find out.
