Called to be One is an exploration day designed for people who are not currently members of the Ordinariate but who are interested in the vision for truth and unity in communion with the successor of Peter which it offers, and who wish to learn more about it.
Ordinariate groups across the country are organising activities to show those who want to know more what it means to be part of this great ecumenical project. Our programme is as follows — there are lots of other groups doing things as well. The programme here in Eastbourne has many of the elements of a pilgrimage to Walsingham.
