Archbishop Peter presided at the 12:30 pm Mass in the Cathedral on Ash Wednesday. He welcomed Father Keith Newton, one of the three former Anglican bishops who were ordained to the Catholic priesthood at Westminster Cathedral on the day that the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham was established on 15th January this year. And on that day it was announced that the Holy Father had appointed Fr Keith as the first Ordinary of the Ordinariate.

Fr Keith concelebrated at the Mass as did Monsignor Matthew Dickens, the Vicar General and Chancellor of the diocese, and Canon James Cronin, the Cathedral Dean.
