Guest Columnist: Prayers for MD Anglicans Converting to Catholicism!

Thus far, there are 36 Anglican parishes/missions in the United States intending to be part of the U.S. Catholic Ordinariate (Diocese) for former Anglicans. This number also includes the handful of existing Anglican Usage Roman Catholic parishes, like Our Lady of the Atonement in San Antonio. The number of parishes/missions will likely continue to rise as plans progress to establish the U.S. Ordinariate.

For traditional Catholics in Maryland, this is cause for great joy. I would like to provide you the parish websites of the three Maryland churches that are intending to convert to Catholicism:

Mt. Calvary Church in Baltimore City

Christ the King Church in Towson

Sacred Heart Church in Mt. Airy


Also, a new Anglican Use Society has formed in Washington, DC, under the patronage of St. Thomas of Canterbury. It is currently meeting at St. Anselm's Roman Catholic Abbey, and it has a new website

As Catholics attached to the Traditional Mass and Sacraments, we have much in common with our traditional Anglican (soon-to-be Anglican Catholic) brothers. Those of us who cannot attend the "Extraordinary Form" Mass in Baltimore or the variety of Traditional Masses offered in the Washington metro area, may find refuge in the churches noted above, once they have converted to Catholicism.

Please keep these fine folks in your prayers!
