More of Canterbury's Best Coming Home to Rome

Anglican Convent of All Saints to be Received in Full Communion

I'll bet many of you didn't know there were Anglican nuns but there are indeed and they go back to the nineteenth century, an outgrowth of the Oxford Movement. In addition to the excellent work they do, as Anglo-Catholics (as you might expect) they often are far better respecters and practicers of Catholic tradition than many Catholic orders (see below, now there is a nun).

There are in the State of Maryland, particularly in the Baltimore area, some superb pockets of Anglo-Catholic worship, where the faithful must be feeling rather beleaguered these days. No doubt they are aware of this recent and sad development and, I hope, are taking stock of their situation.
