Meet the head of the Anglican Ordinariate for North America

June 2, 2013
In response to groups of Anglicans seeking to enter communion with Rome while preserving their traditions, Benedict XVI issued Anglicanorum coetibus, which called for the creation of Anglican ordinariates. The group for Canada and the United States, called the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, was established on January 1, 2012. Witness host Fr. Thomas Rosica sits down with the first leader of the North American ordinariate, Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson.
