An anonymous donor has purchased five acres of land adjacent to the flagship church of the U.S. Anglican Ordinariate and donated it for building a chancery.

“This will be the future home of the chancery of the Ordinariate as well as serve future expansion needs of this wonderful, growing parish. It is an incredible blessing, and I know you all will want to say with me: To God be the glory,” Monsignor Jeffrey N. Steenson, the ordinary of the structure, said on Dec. 2 during a Mass at the parish.

The property, which cost the donors $5 million, will allow the ordinariate to move its office from St. Mary's Seminary in Houston and consolidate its staff which is spread across the United States.

Planning for the chancery will begin later in December, and donors for the construction of the building will be sought out.
