Anglican priests ordained as catholic deacons

AYLESFORD, England, May 9, 2011–A dozen Anglican priests were ordained Catholic deacons last weekend, as a group of some 50 clergy continue their journey toward ministry as priests in the Catholic Church.
Following the time schedule outlined shortly after the establishment of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, ordinations to the diaconate will be taking place through the Easter season. The men will be ordained Catholic priests around Pentecost.

The rapid ordination process is enabling the clergy to continue ministering to those former Anglicans of their communities who have chosen to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church. The formation of these deacons and soon-to-be priests will continue after their ordination. (Zenit)
