Saturday of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity was an important day for former Anglican bishop Carl Reid.
“Carl, my son, your life up to now has been one of profound commitment and witness,” said Archbishop Terrence Prendergast, SJ, at the opening of the ordination Mass at Notre Dame Cathedral Jan. 26. “Your formation and ministry within the Anglican tradition have provided you solid spiritual bedrock.”

“You have been a bold witness to Christ and to the truths of Catholic Christianity–often at great cost to yourself,” the archbishop said.

Father Reid is the second bishop from the small traditional Anglican denomination to be ordained to serve as a priest in the Canadian Deanery of St. John the Baptist of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, a structure for former Anglicans erected Jan. 1, 2012.
