TSC 526 The Personal Ordinariate for Former Anglicans and American Tribunals
Faculty: Rev. Jude Onogbosele, J.C.D. (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
The Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith issued a Decree of Erection of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter (1/1/2012) which Ordinariate covers the entire United States. This provides a special “diocese” for former Anglicans who wish to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church in the United States. The Report of Donald Cardinal Wuerl to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (15/6/2011) states: “Fourth, I suggest that we make available the resources of our tribunals to those Anglicans, both clergy and lay, who will need to secure an annulment before being received into an Ordinariate.” The ultimate goal of this tutorial is to familiarize the canonist with this new situation for American marriage tribunals.
