Alistair Burns recently witnessed 11 Anglicans coming home to the Catholic Church:

"This has been a long, sometimes trying journey, but one filled with hope," Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, said in his homily. "We are celebrating, as these nine adult members are confirmed and two children come into full communion, a joyous, historic occasion."
Archbishop Miller explained the unification process had been set in motion in 2007, when  some bishops of the Anglican communion formally expressed their desire "to enter into full unity with the Holy See, without losing their Anglican distinctiveness."
