The Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham 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.
The distinctive Ordinariate Use Mass is celebrated in different locations around Scotland and all Catholics may receive the Sacraments from an Ordinariate priest. Participating at a Sunday Mass will fulfil their Sunday obligation. Former Episcopalians and Anglicans are especially welcome to explore becoming Catholics through the Ordinariate.
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
