Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross Online

One of the signs of hope for the Australian Church is surely the gradual establishment of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, ie the Australian Ordinariate for former Anglicans.

There have already been a good number of ordinations for the Ordinariate, with more to come, so please do keep those preparing for ordination later this year especially in your prayers.  **(Updated) The next ones are Stephen Gronow to the diaconate, August 23 (Queensland) and Richard Waddell (diaconate, August 24; priesthood, September 8, Melbourne).

So if there is an Ordinariate group near you, do reach out and visit to welcome them, and/or invite them to your Mass!

To find out where they are, the various Ordinariate parishes and communities are establishing an online presence via facebook and other forums.

The Gippsland group now also have a blog with links to other communities online.  Do go check it out!
