10th Anniversary Pilgrimage May 2020

IMG_20160427_102833The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter has posted details of May 3-14, 2020 Pilgrimage in honor of the 10th Anniversary of Anglicanorum Coetibus for those coming from North America.

Led by Bishop Steven Lopes and Ordinariate clergy, the pilgrimage starts in London and includes visits to Oxford, Cambridge, Norwich, and Walsingham.  May 9 is a free day to sight see in London, capped by a Solemn Mass with the three Ordinariates and lay faithful from North America, the UK and Australia to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Apostolic Constitution that paved the way for groups of Anglicans to join the Catholic Church through their own diocese-like structures.

On May 10, the pilgrims will fly to Rome for several days that will include Mass every day in various historic churches in Rome, including St. Peter’s Basilica, and participation in the weekly Papal audience on Wednesday, May 13.

All the details are in the brochure at the link above.  These pictures show the vast interior of St. Peter’s.



This pilgrimage is the highlight of 10th Anniversary celebrations that include the October 2019 Symposium in Rome (it is filling up and seats are limited, so register soon if you plan to go to the academic conference that is two days after the canonization of John Henry Cardinal Newman) and the Anglicanorum Coetibus Society conference Nov. 15-16 in Toronto that you will not want to miss.  More details soon, but it will include Catholic liturgies in the Anglican tradition.
