We are Roman Catholics who worship in a traditional style according to Divine Worship: The Missal. Our Mass is said in sacral English in a way that honours the English Patrimony Pope Benedict XVI asked us to preserve and share. 

Our worship, steeped in the traditional riches of the Anglican liturgical and musical heritage, is rich with traditional ceremonial and sacral language of the Book of Common Prayer.

Our Mass satisfies the Sunday obligation for any Catholic.

A stated goal of the Ordinariate is to retain liturgical elements of both Anglican heritage and Catholic faith.

Divine Worship: The Missal is the Ordinariate's book of liturgical texts for the celebration of Mass. The missal has been approved and promulgated by the Vatican for use beginning November 29, 2015.

Divine Worship: The Missal provides a way for the Ordinariates to celebrate the sacred liturgy of the Catholic Church with an “Anglican inflection.” The missal uses Prayer Book English — language derived from the classic books of the Anglican liturgical tradition — that is fully Catholic in expression and content. 

Join us for Sunday Mass at 12:30 PM.
