God willing, there will soon be a new Ordinariate group in South West Wales

Father Bernard Sixtus, the Ordinariate co-ordinator in South Wales, writes:

There is now a very real possibility at last of forming an Ordinariate Group in South West Wales, gathered around a priest.

I would therefore like to invite any interested party in such a group to contact me (details below) so that this can be taken further, together with the Ordinary and the priest in question.

Please note that this invitation is addressed both to those former Anglicans who became Catholics following a period of exploration but are currently worshipping exclusively in a Catholic Diocesan parish, and to those who may have remained Anglicans following our 2011-13 exploration because no geographically accessible Ordinariate Group emerged at the time.

We look forward to hearing from interested parties; please keep all those involved in this exciting new initiative in your prayers, especially the priest and people who have so far expressed an interest in the formation of this group in this time of discernment and renewed exploration.

    I think this illustrates that groups in formation publicise this fact, with the obvious intention of attracting those in the two categories Fr Sixtus mentions. The idea that there are groups-in-waiting whose existence is being kept secret makes no sense, although the identity of a clergyman still in another jurisdiction might well be protected.

      It depends upon the circumstances of the group.

      >> Groups formed in the manner of this one, by gathering those who have expressed interest in a geographical locale, generally publish invitations in one way or another.

      >> But groups that are coming intact from other denominations usually publish little until they are established in their new situation, unless there is an active blogger in the group.

      Norm.

    The last group which came from another denomination is the one in Denison, TX. We have known about them since 2012, I believe.
