Today is the 6th anniversary of the foundation of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, another high point after the historic Ordination of our first Torres Strait Islander member of the clergy, Kopel Gibuma: with more ordinations on the way.
It was quite fitting that today we got the news of the generous donation from the State Council of the Knights of the Southern Cross (Western Australia) to the Ordinariate’s seminary fund (as we have a number, with a number of applications). The Knights support for the Ordinariate is a witness to the greater unity of the Catholic Church, and is a sign the Ordinariate has laid down roots in the wider-Catholic Church in Australia. Indeed there is a number of Ordinariate members who are also Knights of the Southern Cross (another sign of “United but not Absorbed” with the wider Church).
If you would like to wish the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, you could consider making a donation to our Seminarian Fund:
