Mgr Keith Newton, the head of the personal ordinariate, met Pope Benedict XVI in a private audience last week during a visit to the Vatican.

Mgr Newton met the Holy Father and presented him with several gifts on behalf of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

Accompanying Mgr Newton were Auxiliary Bishop Alan Hopes of Westminster, the English bishop responsible for implementing Anglicanorum coetibus, and the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal William Levada. It was the first time the two men met since Mgr Newton’s appointment in January.
Mgr Newton also attended meetings in Rome relating to the establishment of the ordinariate.
