In recent years some Anglican clergy with their entire congregations have re-united with The Catholic Church. The Holy See has allowed an Anglican Use Liturgy to be celebrated by former Anglican ministers who become Catholics. The Anglican Use Liturgy consists of the Book of Common Prayers of the Anglican Liturgy with some adaptations from the Ordo of Pope Paul VI (the Revised Roman Liturgy).
