The Anglican Ordinariate and the Question of the Parish Church

Fr. Sean Finnegan has been an active commentator on the matter of the Anglican Ordinariate, and this past weekend I noted that he asked a rather pertinent question: Will church buildings be shipped over the Tiber?

Father begins: "An Englishman's home is his castle, it has been said, and it strikes me that a lot of the adherence that an Englishman has to his parish church is because it is to do with home. Perhaps it partly defines one: the place where our family have sometimes worshipped, but at least been baptized, married, and funeralled, sometimes for generations. It is a highly important symbol of the stability of life, a still spot in a changing world."
