Richard Garnaut Multimedia Outline of Story
The ordination of Fr Gordon William Barnier by Bishop James Foley DD – Bishop of Cairns
was described as a historic event during the service. (Listen to soundfiles for full details.)
Fr Gordon Barnier – an (unmarried) Anglican Priest became a Catholic Priest.
A summary as to why it is so historic is (possibly) best described by 
Wikipedia
personal ordinariate is a canonical structure within the Catholic Church established in accordance with the apostolic constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus of 4 November 2009. The text of this document is available on the Holy See’s website, as are also the complementary norms of the same date. This canonical structure enables Anglicans to enter into full communion with the Pope, while maintaining some degree of corporate identity and autonomy with regard to the geographical dioceses for other Catholics of the Latin Church, and preserving elements of their distinctive Anglican spiritual and liturgical heritage.Reference: Vatican – Wikipedia 
Unfortunately, no TV, radio or press journalists or photo journalist were observed by me to be present to report on this historic event.

    Deborah,

    This is certainly a positive development.

    May the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross continue to grow!

    Norm.

    And what about bp. Robarts – he was also on the track to joining AU Ordinariate- but he is still listed on Australian TAC as acting bishop?

      porys,

      You asked: And what about bp. Robarts – he was also on the track to joining AU Ordinariate- but he is still listed on Australian TAC as acting bishop?

      In the various announcements that the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) would seek to form ordinariates a couple years ago, Archbishop Hepworth stated that the bishops of the TAC would continue to provide episcopal oversight for parishes and individuals who were not yet ready to come into the Catholic Church. It appears that Bishop Robarts is performing this function for the Anglican Catholic Church in Australia (ACCA), in which case he probably will come into the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross with the last parish of the ACCA.

      Norm.
