Our task as the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham is to serve the people in Scotland, especially former Scottish Episcopalians, who are seeking Full Communion with the Roman Catholic Church and the See of Saint Peter ... however, you don't have to be either Catholic, Episcopalian or Anglican to be part of our growing Catholic community throughout Scotland.
The Ordinariate was established in 2011 by Pope Benedict XVI to allow Episcopalians and Anglicans to enter into the full communion of the Catholic Church while retaining much of their Anglican heritage and traditions, including many aspects of the Prayer Book liturgy and other services as well as Anglican hymns and music.
We exist to promote the unity of all Christians with the Apostolic See, and to faithfully proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the rich treasures of the tradition we bring with us.
I would like to welcome you to the website of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in Scotland and invite you to find out more here about our work and mission in "the world’s most beautiful country".
Mgr Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham
