Mt. Calvary Episcopal Church, Baltimore, in Process of Converting to Catholic Faith

On Sunday, October 24, 2010 the parishioners of Mount Calvary Church approved the following resolutions at a special parish meeting:

Resolution 1
Resolved: In accordance with Article 12 of the amendment to the Charter of Mount Calvary Church, Baltimore, adopted April 10, 1967, the Vestry of Mount Calvary Church, having determined that The Episcopal Church (formerly known as the “Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America”) has clearly, substantially, and fundamentally changed its doctrine, discipline and worship, Mount Calvary Church should become separate from and independent of The Episcopal Church.
Resolution #2
Resolved: That Mount Calvary Church, upon separation from The Episcopal Church, seek to become an Anglican Use parish of the Roman Catholic Church.

Both resolutions were passed by majorities of 85%.

Since that time Mt. Calvary has been in consultation with the Archdiocese of Baltimore on details of Anglicanorum Coetibus and with the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland over a property settlement.
