Anglican bishop joins Catholic Church

An Anglican bishop has resigned to join the Catholic Church, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby announced today. Bishop Jonathan Goodall, who served as Bishop of Ebbsfleet for eight years, is the first Church of England bishop to become Catholic in a decade. “I have arrived at the decision to step down as Bishop of Ebbsfleet, in order to be received into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church, only after a long period of prayer, which has been among the most testing periods of my life,” said Goodall in a statement.
