Episcopal priest Fr. Warren Tanghe and 10 formerly Episcopalian nuns will be received into the Catholic Church this coming Thursday, September 3, in Baltimore.
Fr. Tanghe is a former Secretary of Forward in Faith North America, The American branch of an international organization of traditional Anglo-Catholics (I was a member for several years before I became Catholic). He has been a frequent commenter on Anglican blogs over the past several years as Anglo-Catholics and Evangelicals in the Episcopal Church has struggled in response to the changes within the Episcopal Church.
The nuns are 10 of a community of 12 sisters of All Saints' Sisters of the Poor, the American branch of a society founded in England, which has been at its present location in Baltimore since 1917. Their move follows 7 years of prayer and discernment.
There is more at the Clerical Whispers blog. Virtune Online has Fr. Tanghe's letter announcing his conversion and stating that he has renounced his membership in the Episcopal Church effective that date.
Updated: The Catholic Review of the Diocese of Baltimore has posted an article about Archbishop O'Brien's reception of the 10 nuns and priest into full communion with the Catholic Church. The nuns then renewed their vows. The two nuns who decided to remain Episcopalian plan to continue living in their community with the ten who have become Catholic. Hat tip TitusOneNine.
