Another dawn - for some?

Saint Augustine

For those Anglicans in England who feel abandoned by their Church and unable or unwilling for one reason or another to consider an Ordinariate option, today's BBC story about the Anglican Mission in England (AMIE) may offer some comfort but who will care for our neighbours in the Church in Wales? 

Excluded from the Mission Society of Saint Wilfrid and Saint Hilda and with the St Augustine Society providing an Anglican Mission in England only, they have been left to the mercy of their Archbishop Ali Bari who has robbed them of their Anglican identity under any meaningful pastoral and sacramental oversight. No 'Mission Society of St David'; no 'Anglican Mission in Wales'; just 'take it' or 'leave it' with the one possibility of an Ordinariate or joining the majority of the population in staying home. 


  1. Wales might be fortunate in not having any false dawn offered them; instead there is the Ordinariate. As one who has experienced the English version of this (and it is intended for the dioceses of England and Wales) let me reassure you that it is the best possible solution; not just for England and Wales but for many who are despairing of their once beloved Anglican Church.

  2. Many there are, who share your concern Ancient Briton. 'Ali Bari' is the stuff of nightmares. Providence may yet allow the Church to reach for the loaded revolver!
