- Appointed Rev. Keith Newton as first ordinary of the new Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in the territory of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales. Rev. Newton was born in Liverpool, England in 1952 and ordained a priest in 1976 for the Anglican diocese of Chelmsford. In March 2002 he was ordained as suffragan bishop of Richborough.
All good news, of course. Why the inclusion of his Anglican cv (almost giving tacit recognition of his anglican orders: "ordained a priest") and nothing about his ordination as a Catholic priest on 15th January?
