We are a group of Anglicans and Roman Catholics in Toronto, who welcome with joy the publication of the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus, and express our gratitude for the Holy Father’s generosity in providing a means for some Anglicans to be received into full communion with the See of Rome, while acknowledging and retaining the aspects of Anglican patrimony that conform to the Catholic faith and have inspired this desire for communion with the Successor of Peter.
We are convinced of the importance of being in communion with the See of Peter and the essential fullness of Catholic doctrine as interpreted through the Petrine Ministry for the organic unity and health of Body of Christ.
We are exploring the possibility of forming a Catholic parish in Toronto under the provisions of the Apostolic Constitution.
Our vision for such a parish community is based on the desire “to worship God in the beauty of holiness” (Ps 29:2), and to express in our worship Christ’s call to unity and the hope for the healing of divisions among the followers of Christ.
On this site you will find news on the progress towards establishing an Ordinariate community in Toronto, as we work with Archbishop Collins to respond to the prayer of Christ for his disciples, “that they may be one.”
