Vicar general thanks Diocese of Maryland for “working with the community during this transition.”
The Rev. Jeffrey Steenson, newly appointed ordinary of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, will receive members of Mount Calvary Church, Baltimore, on Sunday morning.
If the Ordinariate in the United States is a Vatican effort to poach disgruntled Anglicans, Sunday-golfing ex-Anglicans or never-were Anglicans, its newly appointed leader has not received that memo.
Because he is married, the 59-year-old Father Steenson will not be ordained a bishop and will not be able to ordain priests.
