Welcome...

 



























to this site for the Croydon Ordinariate Group.




 
A little bit more about us...
Belief
Our belief is that of the Nicene Creed, and the Catholic faith granted to His Apostles by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who comes to us in His Holy Word, and offers Himself wholly to us in the Sacrament of the Mass, where we are fed "with the spiritual food of the most precious body and blood" of God's Son.


We are in full sacramental communion with the Chief Shepherd of Christ's Church, Pope Francis, the successor of St. Peter to whom our Lord Jesus gave the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven.

History
Many members of the Croydon Ordinariate Group had previously  worshipped at the Anglican parish of St Michael's in Croydon; they were received into full communion with the Church Catholic on the Tuesday of Holy Week, 2012 (pictured), along with Fr. Donald Minchew and Fr. Kenneth Berry, at St Mary's parish in Croydon.

Worship
The Group celebrates the Eucharist, Daily Prayer and the sacraments in the distinctive Ordinariate Rite, contained in the Missal called "Divine Worship" and the "Customary of Our Lady of Walsignham", which reverently bring together an Anglican heritage of prayer and worship with Catholic tradition and belief. The familiar and beautiful language of the Book of Common Prayer, its prayers and petitions, are instantly recognisable in the rite.
