1 01 2011

There is very little at present on this story, so here is Damian Thompson’s succinct account:

As midnight approached, bloggers began reporting that several former Anglican bishops – including Andrew Burnham (Ebbsfleet), Keith Newton (Richborough) and John Broadhurst (Fulham) – will be received into the Roman Catholic Church at Westminster Cathedral today, January 1, 2011.

It is reported by The Anglo-Catholic blog here, and Damian Thompson here.
