St John the Evangelist, Calgary

The Anglican Ordinariate has expanded north into Canada.  On 7 Dec 2012 the Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter and the Archdiocese of Toronto announced the Vatican had given its approval for the creation of a deanery of St John the Baptist as part of the Houston based U.S. Anglican Ordinariate.

Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson announced that he had appointed the Rev. Lee Kenyon, administrator of St. John the Evangelist Church in Calgary as the first dean for Canada.

“The territory of the Ordinariate in North America is enormous, and it will be a great blessing to be able to delegate many of the duties for shepherding these groups to Fr. Kenyon,” said Msgr. Steenson.  “He brings to this work a superb foundation within the Anglican tradition, and he brings this patrimony to the Catholic Church with a wise and generous pastoral heart.”
