The Priests Affiliate are clergy from all over the world (including the UK, France, Germany, the USA and Portugal), who are not incardinated into the Ordinariate, but who nevertheless support the work and mission of the Ordinariate. It is administered by the Friends of the Ordinariate, and the priest affiliate support the us in three ways:
i) By praying for the Ordinary, and the Ordinariate, and for its mission and growth.
ii) By facilitating talks and financial appeals in their particular sphere of ministry, whether it be parochial, chaplaincy, etc.
iii) By maintaining close links with us, centrally, or through friendship with clergy of the Ordinariate, and also by being ambassadors for the Ordinariate to the wider Church, and also in Ecumenical relations.
There are currently more than fifty Priests Affiliate, they are visited for parish appeals, and for the opportunity for the priest and faithful to develop links with the work of the Ordinariate.
If you are interested in becoming part of this apostolate, supporting the initiative of Anglicanorum Coetibus, you can contact the friends, or complete the Priest Affiliate application form, which may be found here, and return it to us.
