Visit to St George's Cathedral Southwark
On the weekend of 31st January / 1st February 2015, Mgr Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, visited St George's Cathedral, Southwark. This visit formed part of a series of Cathedral appeals, organised by the Friends of the Ordinariate, to raise awareness of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham and funds for the work of the Friends.

Mgr Newton was invited to the Cathedral by the Archbishop of Southwark, The Most Revd Peter Smith, and Canon John O'Toole, the former Cathedral Dean. As Canon O'Toole was recently appointed the National Ecumenical Officer for the Bishops Conference of England and Wales, the Acting Dean, Fr Philip Smith, welcomed Mgr Newton and the Friends to the Cathedral.

Speaking after the event, Dylan Parry, who works for the Friends of the Ordinariate, said: "We are very grateful to Archbishop Smith and Canon O'Toole for inviting us to the Cathedral. We're also especially grateful to Fr Philip Smith and all the Cathedral clergy for receiving us in a most hospitable and welcoming way. The Friends would also like to thank Mgr Newton for making the appeal on our behalf, as well as the parishioners and worshippers at St George's. whose generosity is much appreciated."
