Thus, on Jan. 22, Mount Calvary Church in Baltimore will enter the U.S. ordinariate — the first Episcopal congregation that voted to take that step. The Rev. Jason Catania, its priest, expects to complete his own journey this summer.
At that point, he will do something that once seemed unthinkable.
Catania will kneel at his parish altar, as a Catholic priest, and recite one of Anglicanism’s most famous texts — the “Prayer of Humble Access” from the 1662 edition of “The Book of Common Prayer.”
