Among the highlights of this year's agenda is the visit of Archeparch Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kiev-Halych (Ukraine), the major archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, who will offer a reflection Sept. 25 after having presided at the worldwide Ukrainian Catholic Church Synod of Bishops in Winnipeg Sept. 9-16.
The new ordinary for the U.S. Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson, will also attend. The Ordinariate was erected in January 2012 to provide a home for people from the Anglican tradition who wish to become Catholic while maintaining aspects of Anglican liturgy and patrimony under the Holy Father's 2008 apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus.
Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto, the episcopal delegate for Anglicanorum Coetibus in Canada, will give a report on progress here. Groups in Canada have been joining the Church. These "Anglican Use" groups will eventually become part of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.Read the full story at The B.C. Catholic website.
