New York Anglican Church Considers Joining Catholic Church...
While some Episcopalians - the term used by American members of the Worldwide Anglican Communion - were offended by what they considered a Vatican effort to poach disaffected Anglicans, the members of St. Nicholas are intrigued by the interest.
The unexpected advance, announced by the Vatican in October, also would allow married Anglican clergy to be ordained as Catholic priests - a provision that has generated intense discussion, especially among American Catholics who favor eliminating the church's celibacy requirement for priests.
Does it mean Bagen, who has been married for 26 years and has two grown children, could someday serve again as a Catholic priest in the Diocese of Buffalo?
The Anglican Province of America continues towards its ambitious goal of doubling the number of parishes under the APA umbrella.
On December 1, 2007, The Most Reverend Walter Grundorf appointed the Rev. Gene Bagen as Vicar of the Anglican Church of St. Nicholas in Amherst, NY.
This is the second APA parish in New York State.
