The Tablet: More Priests for US Ordinariate
June 11, 2012 1 Comment
Three Episcopal ministers were ordained priests for the ordinariate for former Anglicans in North America.
Frs Jason Catania, John Anthony Vidal and David Reamsnyder were ordained at Baltimore’s Cathedral of Mary Our Queen on Saturday.
Several dozen of Fr Catania’s parishioners at Mt Calvary Church in Baltimore became the first American Anglicans to join the ordinariate after it was launched on 1 January.
Fr Catania told the Baltimore Sun: “Even when I was ordained in the Episcopal Church, I knew someday that I would end up Catholic one way or another. It just took me 12 years to get here.”
Two men have already been ordained to the US ordinariate and 14 more are due to be ordained in the coming weeks.

Fr Andrew Bartus mentions the Baltimore Ordinations:
Congratulations to Fathers David Reamsnyder, Anthony Vidal, and Jason Catania and to the people of Mount Calvary, Baltimore! These three men were ordained last Saturday by Archbishop William Lori (who also ordained the Vicar General, Fr. Scott Hurd) to the Catholic priesthood.
