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
