Home to Rome...

One of the happy bits of news announced at the recent Anglican Use Conference held recently in Houston was the impending reception into the Catholic Church of the All Saints Sisters of the Poor. Founded at All Saints Church, Margaret Street, London, in 1851, they came to this country in 1872 to serve at Mt. Calvary Episcopal Church in Baltimore. The Sisters have been a tiny oasis of catholicity in the Episcopal Church, and recently they have discerned that the Divine Will of God would have them in full communion with the See of Peter.

Here is a brief video of their monastic life, and an indication of what a welcome addition they will be when they are received into the Church on September 3rd.
