Perthites: go watch history being made with the launch of the Ordinariate!

Today is the official launch of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, which is under the patronage of St Augustine of Canterbury.

And it officially gets underway with the priestly ordination of former Anglican Bishop Harry Entwistle, and reception into the Church of around 70 members of his congregation, in Perth tonight at the Cathedral at 7pm.

So if you are in Perth, do go along and show your support.

Regardless, please keep all those preparing to enter the Church, and those being ordained, in your prayers.

Please pray also for those who have so far rejected the invitation to enter or return to the Church, that their hearts might yet soften.

And please do especially remember Bishop Peter Elliott, who has been the lead on this for the Church in Australia, and whose anniversary of consecration as a bishop it is today.

Bishop Elliot's role in the establishment of the Ordinariate of the Southern Cross has been outstanding. UK is still having difficulty in providing a church for its Ordinariate; Bishop Elliot arranged for the Melbourne group to have the church at Campberwell a long time ago. A hearty welcome to to my fellow ex-Anglicans.

So maybe, rather than join the Ordiniariate via the website "Join" box on www.friendsoftheanglican is meant to join up a metropolitan group? Is there a list of those on the net?
