Our Lady of the Sourthen Cross – Ordinariate Unity Day

Have you ever wondered who and what the Ordinariate is?  Why are they different to us?  What about them makes them a distinctive worshipping community?  You now have your chance to see who, and what we are?

The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross is one of three non-geographical dioceses ofthe English Trdition (Australia/Japan, England, North America) who in 2009 accepted Pope Benedict XVI’s invitation to enter communion with Rome while retaining much of their own English patrimony.

During the Ordinariate Clergy Residential Conference in 2014, it was agreed that around the Feast of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, each Ordinariate community would invite friends, fellow Catholics, supporters and other interested people to an event during which they could meet us, but also experience a little of our worship and life.

The Ordinariate Parish of the Most Holy Family will be hosting a day in honour of Our Lady of the Southern Cross, Heavenly Patroness of the Ordinariate.
