  • The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham has announced the establishment of its first religious institute, the Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The ten sisters, who wear the traditional Benedictine habit, were formerly members of an Anglican monastery.

    Pope Benedict established the ordinariate in 2011 to allow Anglican individuals and communities in England and Wales to enter the Catholic Church while retaining elements of their Anglican heritage.
