God protect them from the social justice nuns that would never be caught dead dressed in such a way (or at a pro-life rally).

Always cool to see nuns in their classical habits.

Maryland Sisters Are First Episcopal Order to Become a Catholic Religious Community

That headline should read First Episcopal Order for Women. The Franciscan Friars of the Atonement in Garrison, New York swam the Tiber in 1909 under Fr. Paul Wattson.

I remember reading about this back when the sisters took their private vows.

We have a bit of a personal connection here, because we knew their former chaplain, Fr. Tanghe, when he was the rector of the ultramontane Episcopal parish here in Atlanta before he moved to Maryland.

When the Piskies ran completely and finally off the rails with the 'consecration' of 'bishop' Vicki Gene, we were touring around trying to find a new church home, and Tanghe's parish was thinking about Going Over to Rome. As it happened, they didn't - it is a very small, aging parish and they just didn't have the motivation (or, probably, the money) to make it happen. This is a very "low" diocese, not enough High Churchers here to start an Anglican Use parish (especially since many of us have already swum across the Tiber on our own).

Welcome home, indeed. And unlike many of the Catholic nuns who have sadly fallen away since the Spirit of Vatican II infected the Church, they will really be at home.

Our pastor was discussing the opening of a SECOND seminary for the converted Anglican and Episcopalian men of the cloth to Roman Catholic priesthood.
They keep their wife and children if they are married.

From what I understand these conversions are a result of the 40+ years of the liberalizing of morality, that is, women priests, practicing homosexual male and female ministers and now, same-sex married couples with one being the clergy for a parish.
I assume it was an accumulation of the last 40 years of all KINDS of moral relativism that pushed so many Episcopalians and Anglicans to ask the Vatican for a return to Rome..."Crossing the Tiber."

I also understand that these big group conversions will be allowed to keep their Liturgy, with the addition, of course, of Transubstantiation.
