The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter is a personal ordinariate of the Catholic Church—a jurisdiction within the Church, the equivalent of a diocese, for priests and laypeople from an Anglican background, that enables them to retain elements of their Anglican patrimony after entering the Catholic Church. Its territory extends over the United States and Canada. Former Methodists and former members of denominations such as the United Church of Canada are also included, as they are considered members of "ecclesial communion[s]" of "Anglican heritage".

  • The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter is a personal ordinariate of the Catholic Church—a jurisdiction within the Church, the equivalent of a diocese, for priests and laypeople from an Anglican background, that enables them to retain elements of their Anglican patrimony after entering the Catholic Church. Its territory extends over the United States and Canada. Former Methodists and former members of denominations such as the United Church of Canada are also included, as they are considered members of "ecclesial communion[s]" of "Anglican heritage". The ordinariate describes itself as "a structure, similar to a diocese, that was created by the Vatican in 2012 for former Anglican communities and clergy seeking to become Catholic. Once Catholic, the communities retain many aspects of their Anglican heritage, liturgy, and traditions". It has also been described as "a special kind of diocese confined to specific national territory - much like a military ordinariate that serves members of a national armed forces". The ordinariate uses a missal called Divine Worship: The Missal, a variation of the Roman Rite officially referred to as the "Divine Worship or Ordinariate Use", which incorporates aspects of the Anglican liturgical tradition. Based in Houston, Texas, with the Cathedral of Our Lady of Walsingham as its principal church, the ordinariate includes 42 parishes throughout the United States and Canada. Originally, its territory was the same as that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. However, it was announced on 7 December 2012 that the Holy See, after consulting the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, had extended its territory to include Canada also. Accordingly, the head of the ordinariate is a full member of both episcopal conferences. (en)
