The English Ordinariate

Posted by universalis on 12 April 2012

The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham was established in 2011 by Pope Benedict XVI to allow Anglicans to enter into the full communion of the Catholic Church whilst retaining much of their heritage and traditions.

The Ordinariate has its own calendar, which differs from the English one in including more English saints (many of whom are in fact already celebrated in some Catholic dioceses), and also in giving different names to the “Sundays of the Year”, although the liturgy for those Sundays does not change.

We have been asked to include the Ordinariate’s calendar among the calendars in Universalis, and a draft version of this is now available on the web site and as part of the Windows download. After a few people have tried it out and any corrections have been made, a final version will be included as part of all the Universalis downloads. We will also then add the calendar for the Ordinariate in Wales.

Here are the Universalis pages for the English Ordinariate, and here is the Universalis calendar for 2012. If you have any specialist knowledge of the Ordinariate calendar and spot any mistakes, please let us know using the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of any Universalis page.
