Rorate Coeli has posted a report of another American bishop handing over responsibility for a parish parish to the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter. In this case it is Bishop John Barres of the Diocese of Allentown in Pennsylvania, and the parish is St Stephen of Hungary.
I have often said that what is done in America today will happen this side of the Atlantic tomorrow. So maybe we can look forward to more churches being handed over to traditional orders in the future. A start has been made in New Brighton, Preston and Warrington, but there is a long way to go to catch up with the States, where about 50 churches are now in the hands of traditional orders.
Bishop Barres should be congratulated for making this decision.
