The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter
A community of The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter
Welcome to the Sodality of St. Edmund, King and Martyr. St. Edmund's is a community of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, a jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Church established by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012. The purpose of the Ordinariate is to preserve elements of the Anglican tradition within the Catholic Church in North America. The most distinctive aspect of that tradition is the sacred liturgy, which we celebrate according to Divine Worship (also known as the Ordinariate or Anglican Use), the liturgical provision specifically approved for our use by the Holy See which draws upon the Book of Common Prayer and other texts proper to the Anglican tradition. At St. Edmund's, our celebration of the liturgy is characterized by dignity and solemnity, including traditional Anglican and Catholic sacred music, as well as reverent ceremonial. Our community consists of Catholics who were previously Anglican, as well as lifelong Catholics. All Catholics may fulfill their Sunday and holy day obligation at Ordinariate Masses, and may receive Holy Communion.
The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God,
and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost,
be amongst you, and remain with you always. Amen.
