The Australian Ordinariate Grows

Latest news from the Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross:

Please pray for WARREN WADE to be ordained priest by the Most Rev David Walker, Bishop of Broken Bay, by letters dimissory from the Very Rev Harry Entwistle, at 7:30 on Wednesday December 12th in Our Lady of the Rosary Cathedral, Waitara, NSW.
He will be the eighth priest and ninth cleric of the nascent Ordinariate.

According to records of the TAC's Anglican Catholic Church of Australia, Warren Wade is their priest for the parish of St Mary the Virgin, which currently meets in North Turramurra, one of the northern suburbs of Sydney (and thus within the Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay).

Furthermore, an Ordinariate group is forming in north-east Victoria, around Benalla. My great-aunt and great-uncle live there, so I'm delighted to here of this (though the former is a lapsed and the latter a still-practising Presbyterian, making them probably none too interested in this themselves).
