Conference on the Anglican Tradition in the Catholic Church, Toronto, November 15-16

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus, creating personal ordinariates for Catholics of the Anglican patrimony, the Anglicanorum Coetibus Society is pleased to present its 2019 Conference on the Anglican Tradition in the Catholic Church, taking place in Toronto, Canada.

Sessions will be hosted at St Michael’s Choir School, and will feature multiple speakers on the Anglican patrimonial tradition and community in the Catholic Church, including Bishop Steven Lopes of the Ordinariate, writer and former Anglican David Warren, Fr Jack Barker, and Fr Derek Cross of the Oratory. These talks will focus on the history of the community, what Pope Benedict XVI did for us a decade ago, and what the future holds in store.

​The conference will be anchored by three solemn choral liturgies, taking place at St Michael’s Cathedral Basilica of the Archdiocese of Toronto: a Solemn Mass & Te Deum, Choral Mattins, and Evensong & Benediction. At the close of the weekend, we will join Toronto’s Ordinariate parish, St Thomas More, for their 12:30pm Sunday Mass. (Those who need to leave earlier to make it back home by Sunday morning will want to do so after the conclusion of Evensong & Benediction at 5 pm on Saturday.)

This is a historic occasion to meet and reconnect with fellow Catholics and Anglicans and to celebrate what God has given us through Anglicanorum Coetibus. Register now at
