300 Anglicans defect to Rome after row over women priests - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie: "By John Cooney Religion Correspondent Thursday October 25 2007 UP to 300 Irish Anglicans could soon be joining the Roman Catholic Church to the traditional hymn tune 'Faith of Our Fathers'. A report in today's 'Irish Catholic' newspaper claims that three Church of Ireland parishes are Romeward-bound, and may soon be received by Pope Benedict into full communion with the Catholic Church. This change of denominational allegiance is part of a long-standing doctrinal feud over the ordination of women."
