Anglicanorum Coetibus group being formed at St. John's Abbey in Collegeville

They are having a Prayer Service January 1 at 5:00 p.m. and a Mass on January 2 at 1:30 p.m. using the new Anglican Rite for Roman Catholics.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Brother
John-Bede Pauley, O.S.B. at jpauley [at] csbsju [dot] edu

On November 9, 2009, Pope Benedict approved an Apostolic Constitution entitled "Anglicanorum Coetibus" ("A coming together of Anglicans?"), Providing for Personal Ordinariates for Anglicans Entering into Full Communion with the Catholic Church.

[Brother John-Bede asked that the following correction be posted:
I should point out that we are formed under the 1980 Pastoral Provision rather than invoking Anglicanorum coetibus since the latter has not been officially instituted in the U.S. Also, we are all (at this moment) Roman Catholic (though our group naturally includes former Anglicans/Episcopalians). Your prayers for the continued success of our efforts would be greatly appreciated.

On the weekend of November 13-14, five people gathered at St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota for what became the founding of the Anglican Use Society of St. Bede the Venerable.

To show how serious they are, the even formed their very own blog: The Society of St. Bede the Vernerable up at St. John's.

You can find information on their initial formation and plans at their web site and their blog.

Abbott John Klassen of St. John's Abbey and Bishop John F. Kinney of the Diocese of St. Cloud have already promised their complete cooperation in this new venture, welcoming Anglicans (and Episcopalians) home to Rome.

This is their schedule for the immediate future:
