Fr. Stephen Jones – Former Episcopalian Priest
Growing up in a high Anglican environment, Fr. Stephen Jones subscribed to “branch theory,” the idea that Catholicism, Orthodoxy and Anglicanism were all just different and equally valid expressions of the one true Church. However, as he continued to pray and study while serving as a priest of the Anglo-Catholic Society of the Holy Cross, his yearning for unity and developing understanding of history led him closer to the Catholic Church. Fr. Stephen was accepted into the Catholic priesthood via the pastoral provision by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012.
