Ordinariate Watch: Anglican parish in Towson switches to Catholicism

Christ the King is the largest Anglican church in the U.S. to make the switch

The Rev. Edward Meeks and his flock attended to a "million and one details" last week in the run-up to a momentous day for their church. People to talk to. Flowers to arrange. Food to cook. And, of course, the new sign.

On Sunday, Christ the King Church — Anglican — became Christ the King Catholic Church.

The Towson congregation of about 140 is one of the first groups in the United States to join a new "ordinariate" established for those who want to be Catholic but hold on to Anglican traditions.

This is horrible postmodern commentary. Anglicans/Episcopalians are a sign of Protesantism and its relation-or not to Catholicism. Traditionally we should say that the rationalization for even the use of Catholic showed itself as perversity. I as a non-denominational Protestant, know better then to think that Christendom depends --and even includes -- 'Rome'.
