Welcome

We are a joyfully Catholic community bringing the riches of our Anglican tradition of worship with us into the Church to fulfill Pope Benedict XVI’s vision for Christian unity: diverse expressions of one faith joined together within the Church. As a community of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter we worship and praise God in the eloquence of Prayer Book English through Divine Worship: The Missal, our form of the Roman Rite. We also share in the Ordinariate’s distinctive mission of evangelization: with respect and gratitude for our heritage we seek to build up the one Body of Christ by reaching out to those drawn to Unity in the Church. All are welcome to attend our Masses; no association with Anglicanism is necessary to share our life and fellowship for a day or a lifetime. Learn more about us on these pages; then we invite you to join us as we worship in the Beauty of Holiness and power of the Spirit!
