Our Lady of the Atonement Parish is a member of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter. Like the Ordinariate, our mission is that of evangelization. Our Lady of the Atonement's mission is primary found in our celebration of the Liturgy, rooted in Anglican traditions while conforming to the liturgical standards of the Catholic Church. The liturgical provision of Our Lady of the Atonement parish or that of an Ordinariate parish conforms to the liturgical norms and principles of the General instruction of the Roman Missal. Thus, Ordinariate parishes are part of the Roman Catholic Church. Any Catholic may licitly attend Mass in an Ordinariate parish.

Our Catholic Identity

Read a brief excerpt or watch the video to your right to learn about the story of our community.

This call to make disciples of Christ at The Atonement Academy first started with Fr. Christopher Phillips’ call home to the Roman Catholic Church. In August of 1980, Pope John Paul II issued the Pastoral Provision which allowed Anglican clergymen to become Catholic priests. In January 1982, Fr. Phillips resigned from the Anglican ministry and moved with his family to San Antonio, Texas, at the invitation of a small group of people who had left the Episcopal Church with the intention of becoming Roman Catholics. 

"On July 9, 1983, Father Phillips received permission from Saint Pope John Paull II to be ordained to the Catholic priesthood and was ordained by Archbishop Patrick Flores on August 15, 1983 in the Cathedral of San Fernando."

On the very day the parish was established, Fr. Phillips told his small congregation that in ten years he envisioned that our parish would found a Catholic school… His vision became a reality in August of 1994. Following the tenth anniversary celebration of the parish the previous year, it was determined in October of 1993 that the work of establishing a school would start – initially a small one – to begin the following year.

We're part of The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter!

What is the Ordinariate?

The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter is equivalent to a Diocese, created by the Vatican in 2012 for people nurtured in the Anglican tradition who wish to become Catholic.

Quick Facts:

  • Founded to serve Roman Catholics across the U.S. and Canada, it is the first diocese of its kind in North America.
  • Based in Houston, Texas, this Ordinariate has more than 40 Roman Catholic parishes and communities across the United States and Canada.
  • The Ordinariate was created to provide a path for groups of Anglicans to become fully Roman Catholic, while retaining elements of their worship traditions and spiritual heritage in their union with the Catholic Church. The Ordinariate is a key ecumenical venture exemplifying the Second Vatican Council’s vision for Christian unity, in which diverse expressions of one faith are joined together in the Church.  
  • The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter was established in response to repeated and persistent inquiries from Anglicans who over time, have come to identify the Catholic Church as their home. Those joining the Ordinariate have discerned they are truly Catholic in what they believe and desire full membership in the Catholic Church.
  • There are three Personal Ordinariates in the world: Our Lady of Walsingham in the United Kingdom; the Chair of Saint Peter in the United States and Canada; and Our Lady of the Southern Cross in Australia.

Parishes and communities in the Ordinariates are fully Roman Catholic, but retain elements of Anglican traditions in their liturgy, hospitality, and ministries.

  • In the Second Vatican Council’s Decree on Ecumenism (Unitatis redintegatio), the Catholic Church specified what it would look like to bring all Christians together into communion. The Council said Christian groups would bring their own distinctive traditions to the Catholic Church; they would not be suppressed or absorbed. The Vatican’s remarkable ecumenical gesture in establishing the Ordinariates affirms the Catholic Church’s view that the patrimony of differing Christian spiritualities and liturgies is a treasure meant to be shared within the Catholic tradition.

Safe Environment: The Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Atonement and the entire Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter is committed to providing a safe environment for all our parishioners - from the youngest to the oldest. As a part of that effort, the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter has instituted a robust Safe Environment program.  The parish of Our Lady of The Atonement participates fully in that program. We provide mandatory training (including detailed background checks) for all volunteers who work with children. We also provide parents with materials to use in discussing safe environment issues with their own children.
