Former Anglican Rector joins Ordinariate in Scotland
Friday 23rd March 2012

Sunday 18 March marked an important event in the life of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in Scotland, when the Reverend Stanley Bennie was received into the full communion of the Catholic Church. He had served as Rector of St Peter's Episcopal Church in Stornoway for 30 years until his retirement in 2010.

Having attended the Catholic Church of Our Holy Redeemer in Stornoway for over a year, Mr Bennie was received by the Parish Priest, Fr Roddy Johnston, whilst Fr Len Black, the Ordinariate priest in Scotland, gave the homily also acted as sponsor.

Fr Black said, "The welcome we have received from the Catholic community in Stornoway equalled the warmth with which the Ordinariate has been welcomed in Scotland."

Fr Johnston, Parish Priest of Our Holy Redeemer, said "It was a very joyful occasion in which someone who had worshipped with us for so long became one with us at the table of the Lord".

Stanley Bennie now hopes to serve as a Catholic Priest in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in Scotland.
