The first step is to respond to all U.S. Anglicans who have indicated an interest in the ordinariate and to learn more about them.
“Questionnaires have gone out asking them to identify more clearly who they are and what the nature is of their current community,” Cardinal [Donald] Wuerl explained. “The goal is to determine whether there is a response substantial enough to warrant the establishment of an ordinariate here in the U.S.”
“We’ve already seen how the Holy See, at the request of Pope Benedict, has established an ordinariate in England, Our Lady of Walsingham. And that would probably be a model for what we would do here in the U.S.”
“We’re a little ways off yet,” he said.
