Ordinariate grows and develops...
Over Holy Week the UK Ordinariate expanded by several hundred members, as some 950 laypeople and 64 clergy were received into the Church (the picture above is of the Oxford Group).
And now the next round of diaconal ordinations have started, with two conducted in Cambridge yesterday.
There is also a list of candidates for the priesthood up on the Ordinariate website (and yes, everyone's favourite blogging ex-Anglican Fr Hunwicke is on it; ordinations for Oxford and some others seem to be scheduled for June 12, Pentecost Sunday, at Birmingham Cathedral, but there are a number of different dates and ceremonies for different groups).
So do keep all those concerned in your prayers.
No indication of any substantive progress on the Australian front however...
