ORDINARIATE: 6th Anglican bishop joins

6th Anglican bishop joins Catholic ordinariate RSS Facebook March 30, 2012

A 6th Anglican prelate—Robert Mercer—has been ordained into the priesthood in the Catholic Church.

Father Mercer will serve in the ordinariate of Our Lady of Walshingham, which was established under the provisions of Anglican Coetibus.

A native of Zimbabwe, Father Mercer was one of several Anglican priests deported from South Africa in 1970 because of his opposition to the apartheid regime. He became Bishop of Matabeleland in Zimbabwe, then moved to Canada, where he served the Traditional Anglican Communion before migrating to England.
