About Us

Mount Calvary is a Roman Catholic parish of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.

We represent a new movement among Catholics that embraces the roots of the Catholic faith with newness and vitality. We reintroduce Catholics to the richness of tradition—through reverent liturgy and historical music. Mount Calvary is part of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, established by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012 to enable formerly Episcopal and Anglican parishes to become Catholic. As such, we bring forward an English Catholic heritage as well as a more broadly Catholic tradition that has been independent of many of the liturgical reforms of the 1970s.

Divine Worship is a form of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church that highlights the beauty of the faith through its unique patrimony. In substance, it's the same Mass used in other Roman Catholic Churches. Yet the Vatican has authorized this liturgy that uses, among other things, rich liturgical English and ad orientem worship. Divine Worship is older than the Tridentine Latin Rite, as it is based on a 1549 liturgy that has roots in the Sarum Rite of Medieval England. Divine Worship is immediately accessible to Catholics while at the same time offering an enriching and broadening experience through the depth of its prayers and the breadth of its form.

Originally a parish of the Episcopal Church, Mount Calvary was one of the earliest congregations founded in the Anglo-Catholic tradition in the United States. On January 22, 2012, the clergy and people of Mount Calvary were received into the Catholic Church by the Ordinary of the Ordinariate, Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson.
