Welcome to Our Lady of Walsingham.
The parish of Our Lady of Walsingham, established in 1984 under the Pastoral Provision of St. John Paul II, was the first Catholic parish in the United States dedicated to Our Lady under this title and one of several personal parishes in the country.
Our Order of Mass is once distinctly and traditionally Anglican in character, content, and structure, while also being clearly and recognizably a form of the Roman Rite.
The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter was established on January 1, 2012 in the Apostolic Constitution, Anglicanorum coetibus, by Pope Benedict XVI, to secure a permanent place for our Anglican Patrimony. The parish was named as the Principal Church of the Ordinariate at the time and Msgr. Jeffrey N. Steenson was chosen by the Holy See as the first ordinary. In February of 2016, the church was officially designated a Cathedral when Bishop Steven J. Lopes was ordained as the first bishop of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. We appreciate the continuing support of Pope Francis in the mission of evangelization and reconciling others to Holy Mother Church.
We welcome all visitors to Our Lady of Walsingham and invite you to become involved in any of our many programs and activities.
Faithfully in Christ through Mary,
Fr. Charles Hough IV
