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
A 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.
