Anglicans and the Catholic Church


Around 600 Church of England priests are meeting today to decide how to respond to the Pope's unprecedented invitation to them to join their own special section of the Roman Catholic Church. The priests are from Forward in Faith, a group representing Catholic-minded Anglicans who are unhappy about the way women bishops are being introduced into the Church of England. They want to unite Catholics and Protestants in the same church. Religious Affairs Correspondent Robert Pigott reports on the competing views of the different factions, and Reverend Rod Thomas of evangelical group Reform, discusses if Anglicans should join the Catholic church.
