Additional observations St. John Henry Newman is a parish of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of
St. Peter. On January 1, 2012, Pope Benedict established the ordinariate for groups of Anglicans in the
United States desiring full communion with the Catholic Church (for additional information, visit ). The parish is named for St. John Henry Newman (1801-90), the
famous English cardinal who left the Church of England and joined the Catholic Church in 1845. Similar
ordinariate parishes can be found in communities across the country.
