Former Anglican Bishops Convert to Catholicism, BBC Reports

Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Three ex-Church of England bishops have been ordained as Roman Catholic priests at Westminster Cathedral, converting after a dispute over the ordination of women, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported.

Keith Newton, Andrew Burnham and John Broadhurst have joined a new special section of the Catholic Church called the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, which will be headed by Newton, the broadcaster said.

Last year, the Vatican set up a structure to welcome Anglicans disaffected over issues such as female bishops, homosexual clergy and recognizing same-sex unions.
