Anglican bishop ordained a priest

From Catholic Register-

Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast has ordained Carl Reid, a former Anglican Catholic Church of Canada (ACCC) bishop, to the priesthood.

Reid was ordained Jan. 26 and is the second bishop from the small traditional Anglican denomination to be ordained to serve 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. Fr. Peter Wilkinson, the former ACCC Metropolitan Bishop, was ordained in Victoria, B.C., on Dec. 8 last year and attended Reid’s ordination.

The Ordinariates are special structures set up by Pope Benedict XVI for groups of former Anglicans that allow them to preserve aspects of their patrimony, including an approved Anglican Use liturgy. Under the Pope’s apostolic constitution Anglicanorum coetibus, three Ordinariates have been established, in England and Wales, the United States and Canada, and Australia.
